How do I modify or cancel my registration?

If you have already registered, but would like to modify your existing registration, please follow the below instructions:

  • You can access your registration through the confirmation email you received, or through the registration summary page where you can click the “already registered?” link (under the “Register Now” button at the top of the page).
  • From there, enter your email and confirmation number
  • At the bottom of the Registration Summary page, select either Modify Registration, Submit Payment, or Cancel Registration.
Can I register on behalf of someone else?

Yes. The easiest way to do this is to select the checkmark “I’m registering on behalf of this person” on the first page of registration. From there, you will be able to fill in the attendees information to ensure it is linked to their registration.

If you don’t yet have the details of the individual you are registering, you can register normally with your information (don’t check the box listed above) and that individual can later modify their registration by following the steps listed above under the question “How do I modify my registration?”

Ultimately, the individual attending the event must have their name and contact information linked to their registration. This will ensure they receive a name tag when checking in, that they are able to receive CEUs, and that they receive conference related information leading up to the event.

What is the Cancellation Policy?

Registrants choosing to cancel their tickets on or before May 15, 2023 will incur a $30 cancellation fee and will be refunded the remainder of their ticket cost. Refunds will not be offered for those canceling after May 15, 2023.

Virtual Attendance

How do I attend the event virtually?

Those who registered to attend the event virtually will be provided a link in the weeks leading up to the conference. Unlike in-person attendees, virtual participants will not have an option of which sessions they can attend.

Are sessions offered for virtual attendees on June 14th (Day 3)?

It depends. There are no sessions available for general attendees joining from the virtual track on Day 3, as these will be made up of small discussion groups meant for in-person attendees. However, if you are a DoD active duty service member joining from the virtual track, you can register for the Day 3 Military Behavioral Health Short Course, which will be available for both in-person and virtual attendees.


Where is the conference located?

The conference will be held at the The University of Texas at Austin’s Thompson Conference Center on June 12-14th. For more information, visit our Venue page.

Will meals be provided?

Light refreshments will be provided each morning, with coffee and beverages available throughout the day. A boxed lunch will be provided on Day 1, with a seated lunch on Day 2. Those attending the Military Behavioral Health Short Course will also receive lunch on Day 3.

Continuing Education Credits (CEUs)

How many CEUs will I receive?

Those attending the conference are eligible to receive up to 11 CEUs. Those attending the Day 3 Military Behavioral Health Short Course (active duty service members only) are eligible to receive an additional 6.5 CEUs.

Can I receive CEUs if I’m attending from outside of Texas?

CEUs will be offered by The University of Texas at Austin Steve Hicks School of Social Work’s Office of Professional Development. Those attending from other states are advised to check rules surrounding reciprocity with their state’s licensing board. Many states offer reciprocity between states, others require you to formally request approval from out-of-state credits, and some strictly do not allow out-of-state credit.

What type of CEUs are being offered?

Credit can be approved for Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists and Psychologists licensed for practice in Texas.

Am I eligible to earn 11 CEUs if I plan to attend the conference virtually?

Yes. Regardless of if you plan to attend the conference in-person or virtually, you are eligible to earn up to 11 CEUs.
