The practice of law today places great pressure on lawyers. Some cope well, but many don't. Psychological research has identified some very specific reasons why lawyers suffer from the psychological consequences of change more than other professionals. In this unique program, Dr. Larry Richard explains why this is so-the nature of the job, the unique personality traits of most lawyers, and other factors-and then offers four powerful strategies that can build the psychological resilience of lawyers, inoculate against future stresses, and prepare them to cope with whatever they encounter. These strategies have been field-tested with hundreds of other lawyers, as well as with thousands of soldiers in the US military as part of their psychological "mental toughness" training. Dr. Richard is widely regarded as the leading expert on the psychology of lawyers. Participants will:

  • Understand what makes lawyers unique
  • Learn the underlying principles that govern stress, the ability to tolerate it, and the ability to bounce back from setbacks
  • Take away four proven strategies that they can immediately apply to cope more effectively with the challenges of practicing law
