This session focuses on helping lawyers understand what compassion fatigue, secondary trauma and burnout are, how to recognize their signs and symptoms, and how to addresses their consequences professionally and personally if left unaddressed. Specifically, the presentation explores the intersection between mental health, stress and burnout.
In addition, the speaker shares personal and anecdotal experiences surrounding burnout, mental health, professionalism and stress. This session then shifts to mindfulness and other practical tactics for addressing the situations negatively impacting the lawyer, and recommendations for overcoming obstacles and achieving satisfaction with your chosen profession.
