Solo Small Firm: Are Solos Special? Their Stress Is! Part 1: Chronic Stress, Trauma, Mental Health and Addiction
April 24

Presenter: Joan Bibelhausen, JD, Executive Director, Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers
Time: 8:00 to 9: 00 a.m. – 1 hour Elimination of Bias Credit

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, 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, with a focus on solo and small firm practitioners, will be presented. Personal examples and information on Minnesota’s lawyer assistance program will also be provided.

Solo Small Firm: Are Solos Special? Their Stress Is! Part 2: Now that we know there’s stress, what do we do about it? What are the particular issues for solo and small firm practitioners and what are some tools, techniques and strategies to understand and manage that stress?
