ATSA 2023 Attendee Resources

Thank you for connecting with us at this year’s conference! Here are some resources that may be helpful for you:

Our Safe Haven

The work you do is difficult. These live online sessions will provide a safe, non-threatening space for professionals like you to discuss the challenges you face in your work and connect with others who share similar experiences.

In each session, we will discuss topics important to those attending, for example:

  • Working with challenging cases (and colleagues!)
  • Interacting with clients’ families
  • Recognizing and managing symptoms of burnout
  • How to get support when something goes wrong (for example, probation violations)
  • Working with those who have survived abuse as well as those who’ve perpetrated it

To ensure that each session is workable, we will limit the number of attendees. Registration for each session will, therefore, be on a first-come-first-served basis. We are charging a non-refundable fee of $8.00 to reserve your spot.
