Title: Real Resilience in the time of the Pandemic

Description: It is an understatement to say that we are in stressful times as we all try to manage during the COVID-19 pandemic, both professionally and personally. Further, as we are all involved in the law and justice system, we each engage in conflict, disputes, and crises on a daily basis. In order to ensure we are able to best help other people and achieve our goals, we must look after our own well-being.

This seminar (presented from New York City) explores the insights of neuroscience research to learn practical resilience practices. Positive mental health is something we all deserve in the workplace, so let’s work on enhancing resiliency.
