A+++ - the best CLE course yet!
Was helpful to me.
Very good breathing exercises.
A good basic introduction, for people not familiar with stress management techniques.
I would recommend this to anyone looking to learn new techniques to relax or keep their cool in stressful situations.
Very helpful tips
helpful and practical
This should be a required course at law schools. This was a great course that provided helpful strategies to deal with the everyday stress in the practice of law.
This is a seminar that I will be viewing again.
I think in our hearts we know this but its good to hear it from people trained in the field
this topic cannot be emphasized enough and should be taught by a variety of healing & spiritual practictioners.
A lot of common sense but also a couple unexpected bits of wisdom in here.
Daniel Guerra's introduction to mindfulness meditation is worth the price of admission. If all attorneys incorporated this into their routines, oh what a wonderful profession it would be!
This was an excellent overview of the challenges of dealing with stress, which affects many attorneys. I also liked the 'hands on' experience of mindful meditation.
Excellent program. I literally wrote down every word to practice these techniques each day.
great audience participation!
Useful and practical tools to deal with stress.
An excellent introduction to the concept of mindfulnes.
It's good to know I'm not alone with stress. The techniques and reasons given by the presenters I hope will motivate me, particularly in the area of taking time to take care of myself, rather than work, without thinking I don't have the time to do both.
great seminar - thanks!
Excellent........... I loved the relaxation drills. Great presentation by both.
We need more CLE classes like this. They tend to get too pragmatic and topical on subjects, but not tailored to the human needs of attorneys.
We need more of these!
Practical.Doable. I'm excited about trying some of these recommendations
Good course for when you are absolutely sure that now is the time you must start doing more stress management.
I think the presenters gave great ideas on how to manage stress on a daily basis. Not just for legal situations, but throughout life.
I wish I had taken a course like this years ago! I am definitely going to come back to it periodically for refreshers.
I didn't realize how stressed out I was until I watched this. Good tips on taking care of oneself. All three instructors were enjoyable to watch and to listen to.
very helpful suggestions
best every. Great tips on stress management.
VERY helpful!!! I will definitely be coming back to this program again and again!
MUCH better than I expected! Thoughtful and helpful.
Really valuable course--exceeded my expectations!!
Good introduction and basic tips for stress management.
Very good material on an important topic. I liked the practical aspects of the course.
Great advice! Wonderful program!
A nice change of pace. helpful and practical advice. Although a little naïve about the major stress that the vast majority of attorneys have each day!
Excellent! I am so glad I chose this course. I will be able to go back and listen to it again and again to refocus myself in the midst of attorney madness. This was constructive, well paced, and wonderfully presented. Likely the most useful CLE I'll ever take.
