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: eliminating the stigma associated with help-seeking behaviors.
Recent studies of lawyers and law students reported that fear of someone else finding out about a problem kept our colleagues from seeking (or offering) help. Our profession has often dealt with these issues only when they can no longer be ignored. The result is careers and lives sometimes cut tragically short. This program will delve into the biases that create barriers and counter them with proven research, personal examples and specific strategies for changing the culture and reducing the toxicity in our profession.
