Get strategies to handle the often overwhelming emotions we experience in our workplace from Dr. Tracey Meyers in this 30-minute installment of Webinars for Busy Lawyers.
Difficult emotions pile on us from so many angles in the legal profession with unrealistic client demands, often poorly trained supervisors, isolation, financial pressures, and more – all in the context of an adversarial system with gaping holes in access to justice.
With so many practical challenges, we need to prioritize our emotional well-being. This webinar is designed to give you actionable takeaways you can apply to your everyday life. We’ll cover:
- Emotion Regulation: What it is and how to harness it to manage difficult emotions more effectively.
- The Stress Response in the Body: Understanding how our emotions can create a sense of “dis-ease” in the body.
- Improving Interpersonal Communication: Utilizing mindfulness strategies to improve emotions in our relationships.
Over 20 minutes of Q&A from the live program are included in the recording.
