Have you ever watched someone while they were sleeping? Their eyes move back and forth when they are dreaming. It is thought that this is when the brain processes what we have experienced. When Francine Shapiro discovered Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), she was on a walk. She noticed that when she was walking and thinking of a problem her eyes started to move back and forth. At the end of the walk, she felt better.
Now, EMDR has been used to help people of all ages around the world re-process things that have happened to them so they are less distressing.
The Be It Foundation is dedicated to addressing wellness and mental health stigma. We noticed that there are not very many EMDR providers in South Texas. This means that access to this evidence based trauma-informed care is limited in comparison to other areas with more trained providers. In an effort to increase access to vital trauma-informed care resources in South Texas, we are currently seeking partial scholarship applicants for this training.
The Be It Foundation will cover the remaining amount of your tuition and your consultation for up to 10 licensed or sponsored professionals who meet the following:
_____ Submit a complete application
_____ Attend all 6 full day trainings either in person or virtually
_____ Pay it forward by offering pro bono EMDR Therapy to those in need
_____ Complete the 10 necessary consultation hours for the Basic Training Certificate
_____ Comply with the EMDRIA requirements for training and certification after you receive the certificate
_____ Be willing to consider becoming an EMDR Consultant
_____ Provide a statement about EMDR to be used in marketing and media materials.
_____ This application authorized The Be It Foundation the use of the images and experiences of the trainings in our social media and webpage.
Applications are due by May 31st, 2023
EMDR Training awardees will be invited to The Be It Foundation Awards Gala – Late 2023.
