He was 100. At the University of Pennsylvania, where Dr. Beck taught for many years, he trained generations of psychotherapists in his methods. Through the Beck Institute, which he established in 1994 with his daughter, psychologist Judith S. Beck, he helped trained tens of thousands of therapists in more than 100 countries around the world.
