Form a New Support Group

Our Groups depend on interest and availability. Let us know what group support might help you. We’re always ready to do anything we can to form a critical mass for an active support group.

When we have at least a few lawyers interested in the same kind of group at the same time, we can offer many kinds of groups. Past groups have focused on topics such as: Vicarious Traumatization; Work Search/Unemployed; Depression; Lawyers at Mid-Life/Mid-Career; Lawyers with Interpersonal Difficulties or Learning Disorders; Early Recovery; Retirement; ACOA (for lawyers whose childhoods in alcoholic homes may be reflected in current personality characteristics); etc. If a particular kind of group is of interest to you, let us know. Or if you have a “ready-made group” of peers who would like to discuss and get psychological input on a shared concern, and who can meet in Boston, we can probably accommodate you.

Call us at (617) 482-9600 if you are interested in joining one of these groups or establishing a group not mentioned above.

LCL is eager to help any organizations – whether Big Law Firm, bar organization, nonprofit agency – provide support their staff need to lead sustainable careers and lifestyles. We offer ongoing support group meetings for private groups, as well as single-session presentations and workshops to your group of lawyers, law students, or judges, on a range of topics, including law practice management topics through our Mass LOMAP Program. To arrange a format tailored to your organization’s needs, email our Executive Director, Anna Levine at anna@lclma.org.
