Managing Stress, Burnout, and the Uncertainty brought about by a Global Pandemic (Archived Video Stream) 

Feb. 16, 2022

OBA Mindful Lawyer CPD Series PROGRAM | Original Program Date: February 16, 2022

Burnout was a concern in the legal profession long before the emergence of COVID-19, but the pandemic has exacerbated this problem for lawyers and increased awareness of the importance of self-care and healthy work environments.  What was thought to be a brief, 2-week pause in 2020 has stretched into 2 years of stress and uncertainty for many, with accompanying work-related changes, hassles, and crises.  In addition, while most people are eager to return to in-person activities, many lawyers also report the transition away from remote work and social distancing has been stressful.

Dr. Cipriano will address burnout, stress, and uncertainty, how they impact your health and well-being, and what you can do to manage each so you can remain healthy, focused, and productive.
