This was helpful and interesting. The presenter was a little slow in getting started, but once he began talking about his personal journey with addicting, it was very effective. Thanks.
- Peter D.
Excellent presentation specifically about Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers of PA, but generally about self-care and getting help when it's needed. The presenter discussed the stress inherent in the practice of law, the depression and/or trauma that can result, the percentage of practitioners who resort to alcohol and drugs, and the availability of help, which often is not taken advantage of because of apprehension about being "discovered". Near the end of the lecture, the presenter also told his personal story of adversity and how he eventually climbed out of his personal situation. Worthwhile.

I think it would be more effective for the instructor to share parts of his background upfront. When watching this program, I initially felt it to be rather cold and dry. I also felt no connection to the instructor and it seemed more of a lecture with stats (and no examples) of things most people are already familiar with. At times, I questioned why the instructor was chosen as he seemed to be far removed from the topic. However, the instructor's personally story really impacted me and made me think more personally about the topic. I think even just a minor introduction that includes something along the lines of "I have personally experienced the impact that addiction can have on attorneys and their practices. I would like to share with you some areas of concern, potential impacts and the way that you can seek assistance" would go along way to drawing the viewer in and explaining why the specific instructor was chosen. The instructor could then share his full story, as is, at the end of the program.
