Mental Health & Well-Being During COVID CLE
COVID-19 is placing unprecedented demands and challenges on everyone and in a variety of ways. It is the goal of the “Mental Health & Well-Being During COVID” CLE to focus on the impact it has specifically had on the mental health and well-being of lawyers. Common reactions are discussed and explained, with strategies given to help put these reactions into perspective. Various tools, coping methods, suggestions, and guidelines are provided to assist in managing the impact on lawyers’ health and well-being and boosting their emotional resiliency. This training will be especially beneficial for legal services attorneys, attorneys involved in Legal Aid’s volunteer program, and private attorneys who are coping with not only their own concerns but also their client’s COVID-related legal issues and trauma.
