Stress Management

CLE & non-CLE programs

Stress and Burnout are concerning issues that overwhelmingly impact lawyers to an outsized degree. Levels of depression, addiction, and even suicide have been shown to be overly represented in the legal profession. Vicarious trauma can impact all lawyers, but compassion fatigue hits public interest lawyers--who work with people in trauma every day-- the hardest.


Finding your calm

Mindfulness practices have been shown to have long term impacts on stress response and the capacity for resilience. Mindfulness practices include guided breathing, mindful movement, and meditation, among many other practices. There is a mindfulness practice for everyone, though not everyone will connect with the same one. Once you find what works best for you, you will have a precious tool that you can use any time.

Yoga classes and mindfulness sessions can be tailored to your personal, group or organizational needs.
