Attorneys and like-minded high paced professionals are at risk for compassion fatigue, secondary trauma, and burnout under “normal”, let alone pandemic, conditions due to exposure to the fear, grief, anger, and overwhelm of so many people, including clients, family, friends, and colleagues. This presentation will review the neurobiology and neurophysiology of stress and trauma, why and how stress is contagious, and how to make the stress response work for you rather than against you. This presentation will provide tips for working with difficult personalities, how to de-escalate potentially high-stress and high-drama interactions, and clearly communicate expectations, all the while building resiliency and managing your own stress responses during these difficult and changing times.
