Attorneys have endless responsibilities and obligations, difficult cases and challenging clients. In the midst of all this, it is easy to forget that lawyers are only human; and while lawyers may possess many intellectual super powers; emotional, physical well-being, and overall self-care can get overlooked and ignored.

Before we can be men and women for others we need to take care of ourselves: physically, emotionally, and socially. In a special presentation with Katherine Bender (C'00) and Charles Ricciardelli (F’00, L'06) of The Dave Nee Foundation, learn how to recognize and respond to the signs and symptoms that you or a colleague may be running low on emotional, physical and social energy.

This session will outline the steps you can take to recharge and why you need not be a super hero. What’s more, you will also learn how to recognize the signs of physical, emotional and social distress in your colleagues and clients and learn how to proactively support them. We are not in this alone and your fellow attorneys know intimately the pressures of the job, whether you work in Big Law, are a solo practitioner or a public interest attorney, learn how to practice healthy self-care, client-care, and colleague-care!

Founded in 2006, The Dave Nee Foundation's mission is to eliminate the stigma associated with depression and suicide by promoting and encouraging not only the diagnosis and treatment of depression among young adults, but also the education of young people, their families, and friends about the disease of depression. www.daveneefoundation.org
