We are committed to supporting our fellow colleagues of color.
At Rebecca Kase & CO, we recognize that systemic racism has created many social barriers for BIPOC. One of these includes education. BIPOC 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.
Available Scholarships (offered on an annual basis)
- 2 full ride scholarships for EMDR Basic Training – live or virtual format (valued at $1400 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)
