An uplifting, wonderful program. I am in my 40th year of practice and have battled demons due to the demands and stress. Mr. Harvey put it out of the ballpark! God bless him!

Such a compassionate man. I really enjoyed this lecture.

The "misery machine of the mind" is a seriously useful approach to pushing yourself out of anger and depression about things that are horrible legal happenings that suborn all the things you do at law to get a positive result.
- Harriette L
Mr. Hyman really has an in-depth knowledge of this world. Good caring presentation.
- Chris H
A very different approach to this problem and I believe this approach could work on many where everything else failed
- FRANCES M
Fantastic CLE - provides real world insight into the underlying issues many lawyers attempt to cope with by drinking/using - also provides concrete examples of helpful techniques to deal with the stresses of everyday life and lawyering.
- Mark D
Surprisingly good coverage of a common problem that's hard to get a handle on.
- Shirley S
Again - the only tech issue is the inability to "full screen" the presentation. Good practical presentation of a real issue, the consequences and suggested fixes Thanks. Tom Cartwright
- Thomas C
Really nice guy. This information could help a lot of people.
- Michael S
Loved the speaker! Lots of good material and advice. Very caring person.
- Shannon S
Good content and obviously a very important subject given by one who has "been there". However, I wish Mr. Hyman was more dynamic in his delivery and not so morose and monotone.
- Ronald D
Handout did not match the video presentation, but very thought provoking & good content. Thank-You.
- Katherine J K
This was so powerful and should be featured as a top choice.

- scott f
Great advice for overcoming depression and living a stress free life.

This course was both depressing and instructive. I was not aware that one out of every FIVE attorneys have an
alcohol abuse problem. NO WONDER this course is required.

Genuine and helpful information even for those without a substance abuse problem. Practical advice on how to deal with emotions associated with any legal setback.
- Roberta L
- Norman S
Lots of good information, well-presented. Thank you!

Sobering, pun intended, stats on alcohol and drug use in the profession, but more importantly a walk down the road helping to explain why. Great job!
- David V
Excellent, heart-felt presentation.
- Stephen G
Great presenter. A topic most lawyers usually choose to ignore and pretend doesn't exist. Highly recommend,

Cognitive Disability ProfileAssists with reading & focusing
This profile provides various assistive features to help users with cognitive disabilities such as Autism, Dyslexia, CVA, and others, to focus on the essential elements of the website more easily.
Keyboard Navigation (Motor)Use website with the keyboard
This profile enables motor-impaired persons to operate the website using the keyboard Tab, Shift+Tab, and the Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
Note: This profile prompts automatically for keyboard users.
Blind Users (Screen Reader)Optimize website for screen-readers
This profile adjusts the website to be compatible with screen-readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack. A screen-reader is software that is installed on the blind user’s computer and smartphone, and websites should ensure compatibility with it.
Note: This profile prompts automatically to screen-readers.
We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the broadest possible audience, regardless of ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.

Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers can read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others.
Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images. It provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts embedded within the image using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with popular screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack.
Additionally, keyboard users will find content-skip menus available at any time by clicking Alt+2, or as the first element of the site while navigating with the keyboard. The background process also handles triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus towards them as soon as they appear, not allowing the focus to drift outside.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.

Additional functions – we allow users to change cursor color and size, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other functions.
Assistive technology and browser compatibility
We aim to support as many browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS, and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and MAC users.
Notes, comments, and feedback
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating, improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility following technological advancements. If you wish to contact the website’s owner, please use the website's form
