While a rewarding career, the demanding nature of practicing law can be exhausting and stressful, oftentimes leading to periods of anxiety and depression for many professionals. Over the last year and half, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these feelings by further blurring the already thin line of work-life balance. According to ALM’s 2021 Mental Health and Substance Abuse Survey, 70% of respondents indicated that the pandemic has had a negative effect on their mental health, indicating the expectation of 24/7 availability created by the new remote work environment has led to increased feelings of burnout.

How can you prevent and mitigate burnout? Find out in this webinar led by lawyer-turned-psychotherapist, Chelsy Castro, JD, MA, AM, LCSW. She'll share practical information and helpful tips, including:

  • How to identify your own burnout cycle with symptoms and behavioral examples
  • Tips to recognize symptoms of anxiety and depression, including real-world examples
  • The ways in which stress impacts the brain
  • Ethical implications of unmanaged burnout, anxiety, and/or depression
  • Tools and techniques to prevent and mitigate burnout and the increased likelihood of anxiety and depression
