There’s no escaping CLE – so why not make it fun, with The People’s Therapist! I’ve just finished helping to create an hour-long CLE On-Demand course concerning law and mental health for the LexisNexis University CLE On-Demand program. The title of the course is “Life is a Brief Opportunity for Joy: Mental Health Awareness in the Legal Profession.”
I’m interviewed during the program by another attorney with a varied and interesting career, Julie Mallin, and the entire program was produced and edited by Lisa Carper, a legal editor at LexisNexis. I was under strict orders not to wear a suit and tie – just a sweater, to make me look like a therapist (or maybe a therapist/lawyer) instead of just a lawyer. We talked about anxiety and depression and other concerns affecting lawyers, as well as some issues involving legal ethics.
Thanks, Julie and Lisa, for putting this together!
To give you an idea what the course is like, here’s a “highlights reel” featuring several segments:
…and here’s a brief “biography” segment they put together with information about me:
