Following our successful In-Person/Virtual Conference this past February, we will continue a similar schedule this year.

Final AGENDA has not been set yet.

Our February 2023 schedule:

  • Sunday, February 19, 2023 Academy Day– A robust Pre-Con event with 3-hour deep dives available both in the morning and afternoon. Opportunity to participate in a 2-hour Poverty Simulation is also available. Tickets are not yet available for Academy Day but will be limited once open.
  • Monday and Tuesday, February 20-21, 2023 CTSS In-Person Conference.
  • Wednesday, February 22, 2023, Travel/Transition Day
  • Thursday and Friday, February 23-24, 2023 CTSS Virtual Conference

In-Person and Academy Day events will be held at the Hilton of the Americas in downtown Houston, TX. Beat the rising hotel rates in downtown Houston by using our hotel block at the Hilton. 

Our CEU Information and a link to sign up will be provided as soon as finalized.

Please note that Continuing Ed credits are for attendees in the following mental health disciplines:  psychology, counseling, social work and marriage/family therapy.  CEs can only be issued for sessions you attend live (either in-person or online).  Workshops viewed as recordings after the conference will NOT be eligible for CEs.

Certificates of Attendance will be available for educators or others who need proof of attendance to give to their schools or other employers.  Certificates will be available in PDF form on the Conference Platform. Educators should download them shortly after you complete them, as ATN will not be printing or providing them beyond 90-day window that our conference platform is open.

Certificates of Attendance will be available for educators or others who need proof of attendance to give to their schools or other employers.  Certificates will be available in PDF form on the Conference Platform. Educators should download them shortly after you complete them, as ATN will not be printing or providing them beyond 90-day window that our conference platform is open.

ATTENDEES:  You must download your COAs prior to the end of the 90 days.  After May 26, 2023, the COAs will no longer be available to print.

ATN invites schools and other institutions to reach out to us regarding purchase orders (POs). You cannot use a PO to pay for Eventbrite tickets. You will need to work with ATN.

After payment of the PO, codes will be issued that allow attendees to register.

We strongly prefer pre-payment of purchase orders. POs are not cash, nor are they considered payment.

If your institution cannot prepay on a purchase order (have full payment made, with cash/check/card) prior to the Conference, please contact us and let us know that. We can then determine whether we can accept your purchase order.

If any portion of the Conference fills to capacity, preference will be given to fully paid Purchase Orders over post-event payments.

UPDATE YOUR VENDOR RECORDS- ATN has a new address for remittances. School systems that have been involved with us since the beginning might still have our old information in their records. We cannot be responsible for payments sent to any address other than the one below. We will only receive payments sent to this address.

Payment address:

Attachment & Trauma Network, Inc.
ATTN: S. Garde
PO Box 220
Westminster, MA 01473

We will provide an INVOICE for you if needed.  Contact conference@attachtrauma.org with the following information:

  • Name of Person attending
  • Email of Person attending
  • Name and billing address of institution issuing the PO
  • Contact person name and email address

The ATN Board of Directors looks for guidance from local, state, and federal authorities on all pandemic or other community health related protocols. If needed, ATN will issue/update a policy.  At this time, there are no specific vaccination or masking requirements for TSS2023.  2022’s In-Person conference showed how cooperation, flexibility, and respect can lead to a safe atmosphere. ATN cannot guarantee any set policy at this time so please plan accordingly and be prepared for possible procedure announcements. 

We encourage all attendees to practice social distancing and good health hygiene during the event, as well as to not attend if they are feeling ill or have tested positive.

We also encourage all registered attendees to watch for additional information about the event and community health protocols as the conference gets closer.

Based on the success of February 2023, ATN will again host 3 separate opportunites.

  • Sunday, February 19, 2023 Academy Day– A robust Pre-Con event with 3-hour deep dives available both in the morning and afternoon. New this year, an opportunity to participate in a 2-hour Poverty Simulation is also available. Tickets are not yet available for Academy Day but will be limited once open.
  • Monday and Tuesday, February 20-21, 2023 CTSS In-Person Conference.
  • Wednesday, February 22, 2023, Travel/Transition Day
  • Thursday and Friday, February 23-24, 2023 CTSS Virtual Conference

You can attend 1 or all of these events.  This year, the In-Person Conference ticket includes the Virtual Conference too!  Check out our ticketing for more information.

  • If you use a SCHOOL EMAIL address, make sure to check with your IT department about their SPAM filters. Many virtual attendees do not get the invitation emails because they are filtered by your institution. If they filter Gmail or Google, you will also have trouble receiving our emails. Most emails will come from: “Creating Trauma-Sensitive Schools Conference <conference@attachtrauma.org> via pathable.com” or simply “conference@attachtrauma.org”. Ask your IT department how to make sure emails get to you!

  • Working microphone and camera are needed to participate in interactive sessions
