Applicants must have completed Narrative Focused Trauma Care Level I with the Allender Center.


The cost for Level II is $6,995. At the time of application, a non-refundable $50 application fee is due to ensure a seamless enrollment process. A $500 deposit is due at enrollment and payment plans are available post-enrollment.


We are committed to keeping the cost of this training as accessible as possible. We are tremendously grateful for the investment of our donors who make it possible for us to offer this high-touch, immersive experience.

We offer two scholarship amounts: $750 and $2,000. We have a limited number of scholarships available and we attempt to reserve these scholarships for participants from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and/or those experiencing high financial need.

If you are not a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color) applicant, please use the following guidelines:

To determine which scholarship amount is right for you, please refer to this Green Bottle Sliding Scale graphic designed by Alexis J. Cunningfolk. If you fall into the “full bottle” category on the scale, we ask that you do not request a scholarship for this program. If you fall into the “half-full bottle” category on the scale, please request a scholarship amount of $750. If you fall into the “quarter-full bottle” category on this scale, please request a scholarship amount of $2000.

You may submit your request for a scholarship within the online application.

Application Process

In order to apply, please submit the online application through the portal linked above. Applicants will be asked to respond to questions about your NFTC Level I training experience, experience participating in a group, experience leading or facilitating groups, and ways you have gone deeper into your own story. In addition to your online application form, we will reach out to your NFTC Level I Facilitator as a reference.


Because we believe this work is sacred, and because of the capacity required to engage in this level of work, we are thoughtful in our review process and cannot guarantee that every applicant will be admitted. We work to be transparent throughout the process, and will notify applicants of our Review Committee’s admissions decision as soon as possible.
