CLE | Burnout – Recognition and Prevention Strategies in a Post-COVID World

November 15, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


KingSpry Wellness Program and CLE Opportunity

Presented by Brian S. Quinn, Esquire – Education and Outreach Coordinator, Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers of PA, Inc.

If there is one word we heard during our journey through the pandemic and continue to hear more than any other term as we navigate into the new Post-COVID “new normal” world, it is burnout.

But what is burnout? What does it look like and feel like? More importantly, what can we do to prevent the normal stress and “lawyer anxiety” so common in out profession from developing into the physically and emotionally draining state known as burnout?

Recent studies have shown that there has been a dramatic increase in impairment due to alcoholism, addiction and mental health disorders among members of the legal profession. The statistics are compelling, and clearly indicate that 1 out of 3 attorneys will likely have a need for substance use or mental health services at some point in their careers.

Mr. Quinn will discuss:

  • Early warning signs of impairment, with special emphasis on stress and burnout
  • Symptoms of stress and burnout that are particularly prevalent
  • Discussion will include the basic stress reactions, both physical and psychological; the difference  between healthy stress and distress, with emphasis on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Guidelines for a “master plan,” including realistic prevention strategies
  • Why lawyers and judges are at especially high risk to develop mental health and substance use disorders
  • Free services Lawyers Assistance Programs provide to lawyers, judges, family members, law students
  • Barriers that prevent lawyers and judges from seeking the help they need
