NO CLE - It's About You: Mental Health, Professionalism and Burnout

“Burnout” is officially classified as a legitimate medical diagnosis by the World Health Organization in its International Classification of Diseases handbook, which guides medical providers in diagnosing diseases. According to the handbook, a stressed-out, unhappy attorney who does not want to practice law any longer can be “officially” diagnosed with burnout if he or she meets certain symptoms. Burnout is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed, and it is characterized by three dimensions: feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion; increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job; and reduced professional efficacy. This session will shine a spotlight on practitioner mental health and coping with burnout and stress.
