Aaron Beck var mannen bakom grundandet av kognitiv beteendeterapi. Hans dotter Judith Beck skriver på Beck institutes webbsida:

Today our Institute, our community of practitioners and patients, and the Beck family are mourning the loss of my extraordinary father, Dr. Aaron Beck. He passed away peacefully in his home, at the age of 100.

My father dedicated his life to the development and testing of treatments to improve the lives of countless people throughout the world facing health and mental health challenges. He truly transformed the field of mental health with his development of and decades of research in cognitive behavior therapy.

My father and I co-founded the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy to provide training to CBT practitioners worldwide.  Our dream was to create an institution that would allow CBT to evolve and thrive. We’ve succeeded beyond our expectations. We now honor my father’s legacy as we continue his work and further his mission of helping individuals live healthier, happier and more meaningful lives.

Thank you to those who have already passed along condolences and well wishes to our family. We’re grateful for your support and for your dedication to Beck Institute and the field of Cognitive Behavior Therapy.

Dr. Judith Beck
President and Co-Founder, Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy
