The Healthy Remote Lawyer
with Chelsy Castro, JD, MA, MSW, LCSW
Working from home offers the convenience of a non-existent commute, the safety of social distancing, and the comfort of a pair of well-worn slippers, but poses unintended challenges to productivity and lawyer mental health. Reports of increased feelings of overwhelm, exhaustion, loneliness, anxiety, and depression are common. Chelsy will walk us through how to navigate working from home amongst all the other changes and stressors that accompany working in law.
This free webinar is presented by lawyer-turned-psychotherapist Chelsy Castro, JD, MA, MSW, LCSW on Friday, September 24 at 11 AM CT. It is designed to be eligible for CLE credit* across jurisdictions.
In addition to 1.0 CLE Credit (pending approval) you’ll learn:
