The Touchstone team utilizes a sliding scale payment model for all of our trainings. Continuing education has historically been inaccessible to a large portion of the population creating greater inequity and hardship for those without the financial means to support such learning. We believe that all people deserve to have access to resources that support their professional development and personal growth.
For those with the financial freedom to support others in accessing trainings through resource sharing.
For those with the financial stability to pay the full value of training cost.
For those with limited access to financial resources who will benefit from community support.

Is the Generative Access tier right for me?
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: scholarships are available for our Foundational EMDR Therapy Training as our pricing for that course is determined by the Institute for Creative Mindfulness.
Do you offer scholarships for trainings?
We require 30-days notice for cancellations to receive a refund, minus a 5% administrative fee. If you cancel within thirty days you will be able to apply your full tuition to any other trainings we offer.
What is your refund policy?
Do you offer payment plans?
