Becoming Your Own Best Advocate: Addressing Attorney Burnout in the Age of Covid
Presented by: New Jersey State Bar Association Lawyer Well-Being Committee and New Jersey Lawyer Assistance Program
Did you know most attorneys in New Jersey work in small firms or are owners of their own practice? Albeit inspiring, this also means that in addition to serving your clients, you also have the full responsibility of advocating for yourself. However, in busy or challenging times, well-being is first to be thrown by the wayside. Be honest, have you been working longer hours, taking less vacation or scaling back your health and wellness? As a result over 87% of professionals have experienced symptoms of burnout in the past 3 months.
During this interactive, thought-provoking session, Lauren Baptiste, Chief Empowerment Officer at Acheloa Wellness, will help you shift your mindset around self-care and provide some practical tips to support your well-being during this challenging time. Although we may not be able to change our current circumstances, we have the opportunity to shift how we perceive them. By participating, you’ll walk away from this session feeling renewed, supported and inspired, with an action plan that supports you, your firm, your clients and your community.
