July 19 CLE: Compassionate Professionalism and Wellness—Because Mere Civility Is No Longer Enough
Earn hard-to-get mental illness awareness credits during this July 19, 12–1 PM live GoToWebinar presented by Don Blackwell of Bowman and Brooks LLP and moderated by Cristina Alonso. Course number 6118 is approved for 1 General; 1 Mental Illness Awareness CLE credit. Section members register for only $50.
Don Blackwell, who has written and spoken extensively on issues relating to mental health and professionalism, will share an account of the personal challenges that often overlay our already highly stressful and demanding professional lives as attorneys—challenges that not only can affect our own professionalism, but be profoundly impacted by the professionalism or lack of professionalism of others.
Don will highlight the alarming statistics relating to attorney mental health and discuss common triggers and signs of depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, and eating disorders. He will suggest everyday practices that attorneys can utilize to be more mindful of their and their colleagues’ (friends and foes) mental and emotional well-being and, in the process, enhance everyone’s level of professionalism. He will conclude by educating attendees on the myriad of resources that exist through The Florida Bar to assist those in need of mental health counseling, support, and professional guidance. REGISTER
