Your Blueprint for Stress Resilience

Toronto, September 14, 2017 - January 1, 0001

Change, stress and uncertainty are ever‐present factors in today's legal environment, and specific aspects about the practice of law make it difficult to thrive in the profession long term. Luckily, there are specific research‐based strategies that have been shown to help lawyers thrive and lead to more effective ways to manage stress and pressure.

Paula Davis‐Laack's work with the University of Pennsylvania, the United States Army and thousands of other professionals reveals that those with higher levels of stress resilience were promoted more quickly, had higher levels of engagement, lower levels of catastrophizing and employed healthier coping strategies when under stress. During this workshop, you'll learn and practise some of these strategies to help you build your resilience to stress.

We hope you can join us for this practical and business‐oriented session.
