Family Law and Practice MCLE Meeting





Speaker: Dr. Diana Uchiyama, JD, PsyD, Lawyers' Assistance Program

The Mindful Lawyer explores the science behind mindfulness, identifies why attorneys are a vulnerable population to maladaptive coping skills, and integrates evidence-based strategies for coping with stress inherent to the legal profession. Skills covered by this program include recognizing the impact of stress on decision making, learning to use mindfulness techniques to become less reactive when facing stressors and adversity, and learning new mindfulness techniques an individual can utilize to limit the negative impact of stress on personal resiliency and well-being.


What you will learn by attending this presentation:

  • The impact of well-being and resilience on ethics
  • The negative impact of chronic stress
  • What mindfulness is and the benefits to your legal practice
  • How mindfulness can lead you to respond consciously vs. reacting unconsciously
