Aaron Beck Sketch - Famous Psychotherapists

Aaron Beck is the founder of cognitive therapy and father of Judith Beck, another influential psychotherapist. His approach to psychotherapy is based on scientific principles, and based on problem solving and testing you beliefs. In particular he thought that automatic thoughts are the cause of depressive feelings, and if we address the thoughts we can change the feelings that they cause. Cognitive therapy has stood up to scientific study and has now been proved effective for a range of conditions including: major depressive disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, substance abuse, eating disorders, couples problems, obsessive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, chronic pain, hypochondriasis, and schizophrenia along with many other conditions.

I did quite a few sketches over the weekend, and I will be uploading them gradually over these next few weeks.
