Dr. Aaron T. Beck, M.D. is Emeritus University Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and Director of the Aaron T. Beck Psychopathology Research Center. He created and tested Cognitive Therapy (also known as Cognitive Behavior Therapy), the most extensively used kind of psychotherapy in the world, based on his study on the psychological processes involved in depression and other diseases. He has personally taught a huge number of specialists in this particular technique and has assisted in the establishment of Cognitive Therapy facilities across the world, committed to both research and the care of innumerable patients. Since 2007, he has headed the Beck Initiative partnership, which serves the city’s Medicaid patients in association with Arthur Evans, former Commissioner of Mental Health of Philadelphia. He and his colleagues have been educating caregivers and providing assistance to the most vulnerable people in the city and state, including seriously mentally ill people in hospitals and jails, as well as the homeless.
Beck did research on the psychological and social variables involved with schizophrenia over several decades and established a humanistic approach that involves engaging the individual’s underlying goals, motivations, and talents, and has helped to restore many people to meaningful lives. His revolutionary technique in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania has now spread to Georgia, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Utah. He and his Center have begun to distribute their technique across the country in conjunction with the National Association of State Commissioners of Mental Health. In addition, he and his colleagues are collaborating with Gary Gottlieb, CEO of Partners in Health, to tailor cognitive treatment to the requirements of people in 27 developing nations.
Beck’s work has been thoroughly discussed in 637 articles, including 24 books. He was chosen by Medscape as one of the 50 Most Influential Physicians in History, ranking 20th overall and first among living physicians. He received the Albert Lasker Award for Clinical Medical Research in 2006, which “transformed the understanding and treatment” of mentally ill people, the National Academy of Medicine’s Lienhard Award for the advancement of health services in 2006, the Kennedy Community Health Award in 2013, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014.
