Excellent presentation. Only slight criticism is audio cut out slightly from time to time.
- William C.
Last comment by the off camera speaker was extremely sexist and offensive.
- Christopher M.
The speaker was good at breaking down the stresses a lawyer encounters and how we as lawyers have internal dialogues with ourselves in which we have a tendency to be critical of ourselves, or, as he put it, cognitively distort reality. The list of counter=measures he provides are refreshingly simplistic (e.g., stay in the moment, eat well, exercise, get reasonable sleep, spend time with friends and family, take breaks, plan vacations, think more of the positive aspects of our profession and our good intentions, get help if you need it, etc.). The overall presentation was "down to earth" and thus easy to digest. The books he spoke of all sound like good reads. Very personable guy!

I loved the recommendation of Dr. Gregor's book How Not To Die as well as embracing compassionate practices in general. Both a Vegan diet and compassionate lifestyle have been significant for me in battling depression. Very good presentation.

The course discusses stressors that attorneys face. These subjects are sometimes ignored or not talked about. It also provides suggestions for dealing with difficulties. A reading list is included towards the end.

THIS PRESENTATION WAS GREAT! Presenter was very entertaining and funny and made a very "heavy" topic easy to learn about. Course materials were interesting and eye opening. Thank you Lexvid for making this MCLE available on a complementary basis as ALL attorneys need to be aware of this information.
