Lawyers & Stress – Beating the Winter Blahs
Warm Up, Chill Out and Avoid an Avalanche of Stress

Tuesday, February 10, 2015
5:30-6PM: Light Dinner
6-8PM: CLE
2 MCLE Credits (Ethics)

Pre-Registration: Members FREE | Non-Members $25
Pre-Registration closes at 6PM on Monday, February 9, 2015.

At the Door: $50
There will be a $50.00 charge on the evening of the program if you have not pre-registered.

Description:
The practice of law is demanding and stressful. Lawyers suffer from depression at twice the rate as others. We score above average on stress surveys and below average for coping mechanisms.

Lawyers are persistent, detail oriented, vigorous advocates, and critical thinkers. These same qualities make us vulnerable to stress and depression.

This CLE is about resilience – the ability to recover from stress by learning to relax, rest and bounce back.

Our experts will guide us through a variety of techniques and strategies to help avoid burnout and build resilience. At the end of the evening, you will leave smiling, refreshed and with some new tools for getting through the winter doldrums.

The program will also help you to identify signs of depression, substance abuse and other mental health issues in yourself or someone you know. We will provide you with resource information for getting help.
