Professionalism & Ethics: Chronic Stress, Trauma, Mental Health and Addiction


1.0 Elimination of Bias CLE credit applied for this program.


Featuring: Joan Bibelhausen, JD, Executive Director, Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers


Lawyers face stress daily and are subject to particular circumstances which can lead to higher levels of stress than for most other members of the population.  There is a clearly recognized continuum where unresolved chronic stress becomes a predictor for addiction and mental illness, particularly depression, which are also more prevalent among lawyers.  By understanding this continuum and the facts about addiction and mental illness, lawyers can reduce their risk and, hopefully, get help earlier when there is a mental health or addiction/dependency problem.  Signs, symptoms, risk factors and recovery regarding these problems will be presented.  Ethical perspectives, personal examples and information on Minnesota‚Äôs lawyer assistance program will also be provided.
