Program Overview:

"Getting Lost in Our Lives" will cover the mental health challenges that attorneys face practicing the law. Lawyers suffer increasingly from depression and anxiety, impairments of their own accord, but also major contributing factors to substance abuse.  This program examines some of the root causes of lawyer distress and factors that the legal profession itself and lawyers' personalities contribute to these conditions.  Based on the premise that "Work-Life Balance" is a modern day fiction, the program focuses on areas of life that lawyers can control in order to increase their happiness and emotional resilience. This training will be useful to all practicing lawyers.
