The simple dictionary definition of well-being is the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. Certainly, for lawyers, well-being includes a personal desire to be “comfortable” and “happy”. Also, attorneys who enjoy a healthier well-being experience more job satisfaction and career longevity. But well-being within the profession is now almost a condition of practice – encompassing one’s ability to effectively serve clients better. Sadly, industry reports reflect a well-being deficit within the profession, with higher instances of substance abuse, depression, anxiety, and poor physical health when compared to other professions. And unfortunately, the stress of COVID-19 has compounded these issues for lawyers. Register for this program to appreciate the state of lawyer well-being today, to learn about the early warning signs of unhealthy behaviors, and to develop strategies to thrive, not just survive, during COVID-19.
