Overview (Program Summary)
In-house counsel are often called upon to provide continuous support in stressful, critical matters. Recent studies on the health and well-being of lawyers—and on the effects of chronic stress—remind us that the practice of law involves pressures that can lead to burnout, addiction and depression.Fortunately, there are well-understood strategies and interventions to prevent or de-escalate the negative side effects of high-octane legal careers. Join our panelists, who include a nationally renowned psychologist, a practitioner with experience in mindfulness and in-house counsel, as they identify some of the most common warning signs of burnout and depression and provide positive ideas for coping. The session will present real-world scenarios and interactive simulations to help you handle unanticipated workplace challenges, reduce stress and use new communication and stress reduction skills to be your best self.
