Emotional Resilience for Lawyers
Emotional resilience is an essential tool for attorneys. But what is it? How can
it be developed? And why would a busy attorney care?
Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity and stress and is a quality that litigators
can develop. Resilience is commonly described as the ability to “bounce back” from
life’s inevitable stressors. Legal practice is stressful, and lawyers
face additional demands from family, as well as with finances, health, and relationships.
We know this: all lawyers experience stress and loss.
It is not a matter of if resilience will be needed; it is a matter of when. This ability to “bounce back”
from stress and loss is essential to a successful practice and a happy life. In this workshop, we will
talk about some of the ways that attorneys can gain the support they need, reduce
their isolation, and use their natural resourcefulness to become better lawyers
and more resilient human beings.
This seminar was first presented at the Litigation
2020 workshop and received among the highest reviews from live attendees. Don’t
