Pay-What-You-Wish Program for Self-Identified Black Mental Health Professionals

On July 1, 2020, AEDP Institute launched a 1 year pilot program offering all Institute sponsored online trainings on a ‘pay-what-you-wish’ basis to self-identified Black mental health professionals. The program has been extended through July 2022.

After consultation* with program participants, we would like to be explicit that the pay as you wish program means that you can choose to attend the course for free or set the amount that you feel comfortable with paying.

If you self-identify as Black and you wish to take advantage of this program, you can choose one of the following:

  1. If you have found a training that you want to join, please email with your name and the name of online training, along with the amount (if any) that you wish to pay. We will get you registered. Note that if a course is currently listed as sold out, we may be able to make room for you – please ask.
  2. Haven’t found a specific training that works for you? Be sure to join our mailing list – we announce new trainings all the time.

*AEDP Institute invites Program Participants to voluntarily share their experiences and feedback by joining a scheduled zoom Listening Session and/or by reaching out in the following ways:
