Research shows that judges, lawyers, and legal professionals are at an increased risk for developing compassion fatigue, secondary traumatization, depression, and anxiety.  While the work is very rewarding, the practice of law is a uniquely stressful and demanding profession.  It is important to learn how to take care of yourself in order to have a healthy lifestyle and healthy career in the midst of daily exposure to stressful cases.  This presentation will provide you with the information and resources to help you understand and recognize the signs and symptoms of stress, compassion fatigue, and burnout.  This training will also provide you with practical ways to mitigate the damaging effects of stress.  You will also learn about the Colorado Lawyer Assistance Program (COLAP) and the confidential resources available to you and your colleagues.
