FAQs

Do I have to be EMDR trained to attend your trainings?

While many of our trainings are designed with EMDR practitioners in mind, we have a wide array of offerings for anyone working with perinatal populations. Explore our current list of upcoming and self-paced trainings to find the training that fits your needs and experience.

Is your EMDR training EMDRIA-approved?

Yes! Our Foundational EMDR Training is approved by the EMDR International Association. 

Do you offer scholarships for trainings?

We have elected to offer sliding scale options for each of our trainings rather than asking people to go through a scholarship application process. We believe that time is a resource, just like money, and we want you to be able to select the pricing tier that is most fitting for you. Learn more about our pricing options and find the tier that best suits your needs by exploring our Pricing page. **Please note: limited scholarships are available for our Foundational EMDR Therapy Training.

What is your refund policy?

More than 14 days notice is required for a full refund minus 7% administrative fee. Cancellations made within 14 days of training are eligible for a 50% refund or full transfer to another training within The Touchstone Institute.  Only one transfer to another training is allowed. If you can not attend the transferred training your fee will be forfeited.


No-shows are not eligible for a refund or transfer.  Exceptions to this policy are limited to medically documented circumstances or family bereavements. Failure to attend without prior notification (no-shows) will not qualify for a refund.


Do you offer Continuing Education credits for your courses?

We do! Look at each course registration page for further details as coverage varies.

Utilize our FAQ section to find answers to our most commonly asked questions. If you do not find your question on the list, please feel free to reach out to our administrative team and they will be happy to provide you with the answers you need to make decisions about which training best fits your needs.
