CPD Approved for 1.25 Hours

When:  Wednesday, December 18th, 2019
LAPBC Vancouver office – #415-1080 Mainland St., Vancouver, BC

Many lawyers soldier through daily high stress, negative emotions and adversities that have them operating in fight, flight, or freeze mode. Rumination and self-critical thinking are also common, leaving some lawyers anxious, angry, frustrated, or depressed. Resilience is the ability to perform effectively under pressure, and to bounce back after adversity. Resilience not only helps us survive and recover, it can help us thrive, and enhance future performance. The good news is that resilience can be taught! This workshop will teach you how to build resilience in your practice and in every-day life. Learn about the building blocks of resilience and growth, and how to build mental toughness.
