This workshop is based on research from neuroscience, social science, leadership studies, and research on lawyers and the legal environment. The goal of resilience strategies in the legal profession is to enhance attorney well-being and to increase attorney effectiveness in the roles as advocate, advisor, negotiator, and policy maker. Resilience enhances commitment, engagement, and satisfaction. Resilience strategies can also aid in the prevention of: substance abuse and other addictions; mental health issues, especially depression and anxiety; burn out; and ineffective lawyering.
