Mindfulness for the Busy Attorney

Date of event: 11-19-2019
Time of event: 12:00 noon
Location of event: Flaster Greenberg PC, 1835 Market St., Suite 1050, Philadelphia, PA 19103

Mindfulness for the Busy Attorney

Mindfulness is the practice of bringing your attention to present moment experiences. It is actively paying attention to your thoughts, body sensations and mood in a non-judgmental way.

This program will enhance our own work and the work we do with our lawyers. It will help us to:

  • Learn and implement tools that will enable us to join the conversation and address current strategies, such as the focus on billable hour attainment, client satisfaction and retention.
  • Be able to define how the practice of Mindfulness, and nonjudgmental awareness, supports active listening and problem solving.
  • Explain how being able to increase self-awareness and move away from auto pilot, and to shift from a mindset of responding vs. reacting, supports an environment where stress management skills are routinely needed to deal with situations that are both unfamiliar and uncertain.

The American Bar Association has long been concerned with lawyer wellness. In 2016, after the Journal of Addiction Medicine published a landmark study conducted by the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs and the Betty Hazelden Ford Foundation revealing alarmingly high rates of mental health distress among lawyers, the ABA’s National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being published “The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change.” The publication is an appeal to numerous stakeholders in the legal field to build infrastructures that support attorney well-being. It “recommend[s] that legal employers provide education and training on well-being-related topics and recruit experts to help them do so,” citing that “a number of law firms already offer well-being related programs, like meditation, yoga sessions, and resilience workshops.”

Our speaker:

Harriet Stein has more than thirty years of experience in the healthcare industry, including almost a decade teaching Mindfulness at Johnson & Johnson. She is a Registered Nurse and professional presenter to companies ranging in size from small firms through the Fortune 500. She is called an “inspirational teacher,” and utilizes humor to teach the practice of Mindfulness.

Harriet founded Big Toe in the Water, LLC to help individuals take steps toward a healthier, more fulfilling life, which will enhance both their professional and personal lives. Harriet’s desire to teach Mindfulness began after attending her first professional program with Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program in 2000. She completed advanced teacher training in MBSR at The Myrna Brind Center for Mindfulness at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. Harriet earned a BS in Nursing from Albright College and a MS in Health Administration from Saint Joseph’s University.

Please note:  This program has a limit of 40 attendees.
