We have done our best to compile a list of the most frequently asked questions regarding the conference. If you don't find what you are looking for here please reach out.  

A 3rd party vendor is offering CEUs for certain professionals.  ATN is not part of the CEU determination, process, or certification.  CEUs are only available for attendance at live in-person and live virtual sessions.  No recordings can be considered for CEUs. Please direct all questions to the vendor listed at the link.

Information on each offering can be found at the links below: 

Houston CEUs
Virtual CEUs

EDUCATORS- Certificates of Attendance will be available in PDF form on the Conference Platform.  Educators should download them as ATN will not be printing or providing them beyond the PDF file for each Session.  

ATTENDEES:  You must download your COAs prior to the end of the 90 days.  After May 27, 2022, the COAs will no longer be available to print.

  • It’s February! Please contact conference@attachtrauma.org to see if you can register with a Purchase Order.  It is our goal to get every attendee to the Conferences.  Best response to those who contact prior to February 18th.  We will only respond to emails at this time due to volume. 
  • ATN invites schools and other institutions to reach out to us regarding purchase orders.
  • We strongly prefer prepayment of purchase orders. 
  • 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.  This was used last year but many school systems did not update our information in their records.  We cannot be responsible for payments sent to any address besides the one below.  We will only accept payments sent to this address.
  • Payment address:

The Attachment and Trauma Network (“ATN”) continues to monitor policies and procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as any other community-wide health issues. The safety of our attendees, staff, speakers, and volunteers at our 2022 CTSS Conference is our top priority. We are following guidance of federal, state, and local agencies to implement best practices aimed at managing the spread of the virus.

Given the desire of ATN’s Board of Directors to keep everyone as safe as possible, ALL attendees of the 2022 in-person conference must be fully vaccinated–including attendees, presenters, exhibitors, staff, volunteers, and sponsors. Registered conference attendees, staff and volunteers will receive information on how to verify their vaccination status using a free, simple, secure, and HIPAA-compliant third-party vendor. Fully vaccinated, for the purpose of this policy, is defined as receiving two doses of either Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of Johnson & Johnson.  Additionally, we recommend that all attendees eligible for booster vaccines receive one prior to the conference; however, at this time, boosters will not be required to attend.

We recognize that vaccination is a personal choice and for some not medically advised.  We also recognize that for some being in large crowds can feel too overwhelming right now. This is why we are offering the Virtual Portion of our conference on February 24 & 25, 2022.  We urge those who can not attend the In-Person Conference to consider the Virtual option.

In addition to the vaccine requirement, we will be requiring that all attendees, presenters, exhibitors, staff, volunteers and sponsors at the In-Person Portion of the conference wear masks in all sessions, the exhibit hall, and common conference areas.  We are considering additional safety measures as part of our onsite mitigation plan. Conclusive decisions on these will be made closer to the conference date in February. These considerations include social distancing, color-coded systems to show personal social distance comfort, etc. We continue to monitor and evaluate the outlook for in-person events and will share updates as they are available. We will post more information about what you can expect onsite as we get closer to our event dates.

ATN will have measures in place to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus; however, ATN, under no circumstances, is able to guarantee that you or a guest will not become infected with the virus or any other community spreading illness while in attendance at the 2022 CTSS Conference.

Adherence to ATN In-Person event policies and guidelines will be monitored and enforced. If for any reason, you do not feel you will be able to comply with ATN’s policies, please consider our Virtual Conference.

Purchasing an In-Person Conference and/or a Pre-Con ticket confirms you understand and agree to abide by all of the above.

This policy was approved by Board of Directors on December 8, 2021

ATN heard from our attendees that there was interest for both an in-person and virtual conferences.  We have structured both a virtual and an in-person Conference during our conference week.  Keynotes will be different.  There might be some overlap of sessions but these are 2 separate Conferences.  We have also added a Pre-Con day on Sunday, Feb 20, 2022.  

You can attend 1, 2, or all 3 of these days.  Bundles are available for the In-Person and Virtual.

ATN is providing a Pre Conference Day on Sunday, Feb 20, 2022 for our In-Person Conference.  This is a separate purchase from the In-Person Conference.

All sessions are listed in this Agenda with details.  Tracks designate if the session is Virtual or In-Person or Pre-Con.  These are 3 separate purchases.  Visit the main conference page for up to date agenda.
