The ABA Report: The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change was released in 2017. To be a good lawyer, one has to be a healthy lawyer. Sadly, our profession is falling short when it comes to well-being. The findings revealed in the report are incompatible with a sustainable legal profession and raise profound implications for a lawyer’s basic competence. The report’s recommendations focus on five separate themes. In this occasional series, Joan Bibelhausen and her guests will address each of these themes in turn.
This program will focus on this theme: educating legal professionals on what lawyer well-being means, why it is critical to our profession and how to further that goal. With a grounding in the high incidence of mental health and substance use issues in our profession, this program will provide an approach to increasing well-being backed by empirical evidence and proven strategies. Speakers will explore the reluctance of lawyers to seek or offer help and offer options for reducing barriers. They will offer examples of moving into a program of recovery or enhanced well-being and discuss specific and realistic strategies for dealing with challenges in life and practice.
