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:

  • Why lawyers are an especially vulnerable population to the pitfalls of working from home
  • How to identify anxiety and depression in lawyers
  • The ethical implications of unmanaged anxiety, and/or depression in the legal profession
  • Techniques to decrease the likelihood of depression and anxiety for lawyers working remotely

The added stress of family responsibilities and isolation when working remotely can threaten a lawyer’s focus, stress management capabilities, and overall mental health and well-being. This webcast was designed to help your well-being.
