Feeling stressed? You’re not alone. Practicing law is stressful, especially
now. Join us on Dec. 8, at noon, to hear from practicing attorneys who have
faced depression, discrimination and substance abuse. Learn how they manage and
overcome the stressors in their lives to be resilient and successful. In
addition, you’ll hear from a professional clinician about the physical impact of
psychological stress. You’ll learn tools for managing daily stressors,
techniques to replace unhealthy coping mechanisms with healthy alternatives, and
avenues for seeking help.
The Resilient Lawyer Series, launched in October 2020, is a series of
