Featured seminar
Using Cognitive and Behavioral Techniques in Emotionally Charged Situations
Although your life and work are filled with emotionally charged situations, the general notion is that there are only two ways to cope: react or suppress. Focused on attorneys’ emotional health, this class goes beyond the general thinking about “stress management” and instead explores how specific patterns of thinking can affect emotional states. You will receive examples of each technique and tools for immediate integration into your professional life as a practicing attorney. Register today!
