This program is presented by Will Meyerhofer, a retired corporate attorney who is now a psychotherapist in private practice and an author of books and articles about law and mental health. Will specializes in counseling attorneys struggling with career and life issues, including depression, anxiety, burnout and substance abuse, often as a result of their demanding professional lives.
The program will survey the rates of mental health and substance abuse among attorneys and the specific challenges of the legal profession, including recent developments, that may contribute to the high incidence of these issues. Attorneys will learn strategies to help combat and manage anxiety and depression, spot and address burnout, and comply with the ethical rules regarding mental issues, including handling a situation where a colleague's performance might be compromised by substance abuse.
Very open and informative.
One of the best programs I have seen on this subject matter.
Great presenter! Tough, "depressing" topic, but the presenter was upbeat and reassuring. Felt like an hour of therapy!
Amusing video. Good one to share with your kid when they say they want to go to law school. :-)
Felt like he was telling my story ;)
most honest presentation on issue I have ever seen. in 35 yrs of practicing law.
I learned more about the importance of life balance as an attorney
Wish there were more seminars as helpful and informative as this one.
Good background and statistics illustrating the problems. Would suggest possibly some more focus on how to address these problems personally and as a profession.
Good course and lecturer.
Really enjoyed this speaker and felt his points were spot on. Would have loved to have heard suggestions for how we can change this profession!
Great presenter. This should be a required presentation for law school students and/or newly licensed lawyers. I could have done without the mention of evolution as this speaks to a personal, scientific belief and did not feel it was topically related. But overall, fantastic presentation.
Excellent presentation. Agreed with other commenters that it would be a great add for law schools to help law students understand their vulnerabilities in the profession.
One of the most appropriate coursed I have taken; all lawyers should see this!
This is the most honest CLE I've taken, and this presentation should be required for every entering 1L and new attorney.
Very good presentation.
I wish I had seen this program 15 years ago. It would have been helpful to know that I wasn't the problem, I was simply surrounded by sick people.
Pace and content were both excellent!
Very informative and should be offered especially to young lawyers and law students
Really great topic that should be discussed with all lawyers (particularly new lawyers and maybe even law students).
This was outstanding! One of the best courses I've attended. Thank you!
Absolutely terrific presentation!
Most helpful CLE in this area I've ever attended
Will did a fantastic job. This was the best program I've watched so far.
