Leading the Way in Trauma Therapy

Social Justice Scholarships

Social Justice Scholarships

 

We’re pleased to offer the following “Social Justice” training scholarships to therapists who are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color), TGNC (Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming), or members of other marginalized groups.

(You can learn about the background and rationale here.)

 

EMDR Group Consultation Package, or Discount on Certification Package

Four half-day group consultation sessions. This is available at no cost to any eligible person who we have trained in EMDR or PC this year (start date in 2020), or who participates in our current or future EMDR or PC trainings.

As an alternative, eligible people who we have trained in EMDR can request a $200 discount on the EMDR Certification package, in addition to the existing $200 discount available to all those who obtained their EMDR training from us.

(Note that this social justice scholarship/discount does not apply to those who obtain trainings from our Affiliated Trainers who manage their own registrations etc., as they are addressing social justice issues in their own ways.) 

Eligible persons wishing to participate in the consultation sessions (or discount on the certification package) should e-mail us the following information: 1) The marginalized group(s) to which you belong, 2) the training you attended, including the instructor and the date it started, and 3) whether you prefer the Group Consultation package or the additional discount on the EMDR Certification package. We will confirm your eligibility upon receipt of your email, and send you the information you will need to participate.

Candidates (at any level in their career) will be selected based on promise of professional excellence. To apply, e-mail the following (in a single e-mail):

  • cover letter of max 1 page, to include mention of the marginalized group(s) of which you're a member, the reason for your interest in the training program, and why you should be selected

  • one or two recommendation letters, from current or previous supervisors or from other sources

Time is tight for the August 31 training start date, please submit applications by Friday, August 7 at 5:00 PM Eastern time.
