Wellness for our Profession: Strategies & Tactics that Work Out of Stock
Item added to cart
About the Seminar
The legal profession is plagued by chronic stress, poor self-care, high rates of depression, and rampant alcohol abuse. These psychological conditions affect not only lawyers' subjective sense of well-being, they also impair professional effectiveness. For over a quarter of a century, the legal profession has known that many of its practitioners are languishing, but far too little has been done about it. Until now.
In the last several years, attorneys and bar associations across the country have begun to create wellness committees and task forces to explore how to proactively deal with the distress that plagues our profession and how to support lawyers' individual attempts to live happier and healthier lives.
Mike Ethridge, Jack Pringle and Anne Brafford are three attorneys who have been at the forefront of this wellness effort. All three have lectured extensively on this subject and have worked with lawyers, law firms and bar associations across the country on how to promote wellness in our profession. In this program they will venture beyond the theoretical, and will explore practical ways lawyers can create lives that are more joyful and more meaningful, as well as tactics and strategies that law firm leaders can use to create cultures of wellness for all of those who work in their firms.
