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.

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

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.

Is your EMDR training EMDRIA approved?

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?

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

Do you offer Continuing Education credits for your courses?

Mara is senior faculty with The Institute for Creative Mindfulness and utilizes their curriculum for Foundational EMDR Therapy Training. All of our other trainings are offered under the umbrella of The Touchstone Institute. To learn more about ICM visit their website.
