Tamra Hughes, MA, LPC goes to great lengths to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems. There may be occasional issues that come to the attention of the staff, which require intervention and/or action on the part of the Training Director. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances.
When a training participant files a grievance, the following actions will be taken.
1. If the grievance concerns a trainer, training supervisor or training consultant, the content presented by a staff person, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in writing and to indicate whether grieved person a) wishes to remain confidential and b) wishes an action to be taken. Only written complaints will be acted on.
2. If no action is requested, the Training Director will review the complaint, and if appropriate, pass the comments on to the appropriate staff member(s), and if requested, may attempt to protect the confidentiality of the grieved individual. However due to the small size of the training program provided by the EMDR Center of the Rockies confidentiality may not be possible when reviewing a complaint with the appropriate staff member(s). If appropriate, the Training Director may review the grievance with the appropriate staff member(s) to clarify the nature of the grievance, the staff member’s actions, and what actions if any need to be taken to address the issues raised in the grievance.
3. In order for action to be considered, the request must be in writing and must clearly state the grievance and identify the complainant. Unwritten or anonymous grievances will not be acted on.

If the grievance is related to a violation of the Participant’s agreement and the grieved person has failed to comply with one or more provisions of the Participant’s agreement, the Training Director may removed the grieved person from the training without refund as described in the Participant’s agreement.
6. If the complainant is in compliance with the Participant’s agreement and requests action, the Training Director will:
a. Offer to mediate the complaint to find a positive resolution.
b. For complaints about the Training Director, the Training Director may at his sole discretion request mediation by a staff member not involved in the complaint or a neutral outside mediator.
7. If a positive resolution cannot be found, the Training Director may in his sole discretion:
a. Provide a credit for a subsequent training.
