Managing Stress and Anxiety – Resilient Lawyer Series [MBA Program]


December 8, 2020 12:00 pm

Feeling stressed? You’re not alone. Practicing law is stressful, especially now. Join us on Dec. 8, at noon, to hear from practicing attorneys who have faced depression, discrimination and substance abuse. Learn how they manage and overcome the stressors in their lives to be resilient and successful. In addition, you’ll hear from a professional clinician about the physical impact of psychological stress. You’ll learn tools for managing daily stressors, techniques to replace unhealthy coping mechanisms with healthy alternatives, and avenues for seeking help.

The Resilient Lawyer Series, launched in October 2020, is a series of programs designed to guide new and experienced attorneys through the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recession. Through multiple virtual events, our experts will provide a wealth of information to help you start, expand or pivot a practice; break into other practice areas; and otherwise adjust to the current legal landscape.

This session is presented in collaboration with:

  • Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers/The Massachusetts Law Office Management Assistance Program
  • Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Standing Committee on Lawyer Well-Being
  • Massachusetts Bar Association’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee
  • MBA’s Attorney Well-Being Committee

Become a resilient lawyer and learn new skills and career development techniques to respond to the downturn in business while growing and adapting your practice in the new normal.

This webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required by 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 8, to participate in this program. After you register with the MBA, please look for an email from MassBar Education with the Webinar ID and Password. The email will be sent after 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 8.
