Therefore, we intentionally keep the overall cost of the trainings low in order to make them as accessible as possible. Many mental health therapists are faced with socioeconomic and/or other barriers that make it difficult to afford various trainings. Therefore, the options below are designed to offer financial support to attend our EMDR trainings. If you, or a clinician you know, cannot afford to pay full price for one of our upcoming trainings, please review the options below that are offered to increase access. Payment Plan: If you are able to pay the full registration fee but need to space out payments, we would be happy to provide a payment plan that allows for you to pay in installments.

Partial Scholarship: Many mental health therapists experience inequitable employment and compensation that make it challenging to afford EMDR trainings and other advanced clinical trainings. Others are experiencing financial hardship for a variety of reasons.
