The Touchstone team utilizes a sliding scale payment model for all 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.
Payment plans are available for all pricing tiers. Reach out to arrange a multi-month plan that works for your budget.
If our tiered pricing and payment plans are not sufficient to meet your financial needs, use this coupon code at checkout to receive an additional 10% discount, no questions asked: access10. (This discount is not applicable to Foundational EMDR training or Brainspotting Phases 1 or 2)
If you are an agency with 10 or more people registering for the same course, please contact us for information on our agency pricing.

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! We offer Foundational EMDR training under the umbrella of the Institute for Creative Mindfulness utilizing their curriculum which 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: scholarships are available for our Foundational EMDR Therapy Training as our pricing for that course is determined by the Institute for Creative Mindfulness.
What is your refund policy?
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.
Do you offer Continuing Education credits for your courses?
We do! Look at each course registration page for further details as coverage varies.
