The Scholarship Fund was created to support colleagues of color advance in EMDR.
At Rebecca Kase & CO, we recognize that systemic racism has created many social barriers for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). One of these includes education. BIPOC individuals have historically had poorer access to quality education, fewer opportunities to pursue advanced education, and even fewer opportunities towards specialty training and certifications. We want to try to make a difference as it relates to advanced clinical training for mental health professionals and social service providers.
Rebecca Kase & CO is proud to offer the following annual scholarships for training and advanced certifications, specifically available to BIPOC professionals. Scholarships are available specifically to Rebecca Kase & CO trainings.
- 2 full-ride scholarships for EMDR Basic Training for each training cohort- live or virtual format (valued at $1500 and 50 hours of education per training)
- Includes all lecture and consultation
- Trainees will need to purchase the Francine Shapiro text independently and print off training materials independently.
- 2 full-ride scholarships for Advanced EMDR Training (valued at $75-175 and 4-8 hours of education per training)
