More detailed description
Lawyers face stress daily and are subject to particular circumstances which can lead to higher levels of stress than for most other members of the population. There is a clearly recognized continuum where unresolved chronic stress becomes a predictor for addiction and mental illness, which are also more prevalent among lawyers. By understanding this continuum, lawyers can reduce their risk and, hopefully, get help earlier when there is a mental health or addiction/dependency problem. Signs, symptoms, risk factors and recovery regarding these problems will be presented. Personal examples and information on Minnesota’s lawyer assistance program will also be provided.
Following the two hour elimination of bias presentation, learn stress management techniques: resources, practical strategies and experiential guidance to make a difference in your practice and your life.
