Lawyers suffer increasingly from depression and anxiety, which are not only impairments in and of themselves, but also major contributing factors to substance abuse. In this program, our seasoned panelist will examine some of the root causes of lawyer distress and factors that the legal profession and lawyers' personalities contribute to these conditions. Based on the premise that "Work—Life Balance" is a modern day fiction, the program will focus on areas of life that lawyers can control in order to increase their happiness and emotional resilience.
Topics of discussion will include:
- Identifying root causes of lawyer distress
- Focusing on areas of life that lawyers can control
- Increasing your happiness and emotional resilience
