Join the DAYL Wellness Committee for a CLE program entitled, “The Professionals Toolkit: Survival Skills to Cope with Stress” on Thursday, October 18 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm at the Belo Mansion.
It comes as no surprise that lawyers are continuously faced with various work-related stressors that impact not only their professional lives, but their personal lives, as well. Although many of these stressors are hard to avoid given the nature of the profession, there are many ways to manage their effects and turn them into positive experiences.
This program will be presented by Elizabeth Reeder Johnson, MSW, LCSW and will outline various mechanisms by which young lawyers can identify and manage the numerous stressors they face on a daily basis. In addition to providing insight into numerous techniques available to manage and relieve stress, anxiety, and depression, Beth will take attendees through an interactive communication exercise that will allow them to put some of her advice into immediate practice.
Beth is a licensed Psychiatric Social Worker and Therapist who specializes in helping clients effectively set goals, increase communication skills, develop social skills, learn problem solving skills, increase self-worth, learn mindfulness, and implement new coping skills and replacement behaviors to meet their personal goals.

This program is pending approval for 1.00 hour of ethics CLE credit by the State Bar of Texas.
