Please read in full this agreement to ensure you understand all the EMDR Intensives Retreat ("Training") requirements, expectations, and how to prepare yourself for the training. The Retreat Host, Kelly Smyth-Dent with Scaling Up LLC ("Company") will facilitate this Training.
You must be an EMDR trained therapist to attend this Training.
CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICIES
Because this training is so small and personalized, we do appreciate when participants can plan in advance and restrain from cancelling or transferring at the last minute. The closer to the training date, the more difficult it is to fill your spot. Therefore, if you register we strongly recommend that you block the dates on your calendar and prepare in advance to make the most of your time at the retreat.
Cancellation Policy: If you cancel 45-days or more before the first day of the retreat, then you will receive a full refund minus a $100 administrative fee. If you cancel your registration 44-days or less before the first day of the retreat, then the $600 deposit is forfeited. Any additional amount paid will be refunded. A no show to the retreat forfeits the full-amount paid.
Transfer Policy: We do know that emergencies and unexpected events do happen. We also know that filling your spot at the last minute can be challenging and sometimes impossible. Therefore, we will allow people to transfer their payment to another EMDR Intensives Retreat (with first priority) within the following guideline:
Transfer to a different cohort 45-days or more before the first day of the retreat costs $150 administrative fee
Transfer to a different cohort 45-days to 30-days before the first day of the retreat costs $250 administrative fee
Transfer to a different cohort 30-days or to 15-days before the first day of the retreat costs $450 administrative fee
Transfer to a different cohort 15-days or less before the first day of the retreat costs $600 administrative fee
