Did you know that stress can actually hijack your mind? Do you know that with practice, you can shift how the mind functions under stress? Interested in learning more? Here’s a seminar designed especially for lawyers experiencing the high-pressure demands inherent in their professional environment.
A Better Mind: Decision-Making Under Stress will teach lawyers how to identify the most common errors in judgment resulting from stress, how to be purposely aware of the mind and apply mindful thinking strategies, and how to actively shape the mind and reduce stress through mindfulness practice.
Recent research provides strong evidence that practicing mindfulness changes the brain, and it does so in ways that anyone working in our complex legal environment should know about. Mindfulness is considered one of the most effective methods to improve overall wellness and well-being.
Tony Pacione, Clinical Director for the Illinois Lawyers’ Assistance Program, and Michelle Silverthorn, Diversity and Education Director of the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism, will facilitate this mindful seminar.
