The Law Society of Western Australia
Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace Perth

Servicing individuals impacted by domestic violence, family disputes, criminal and other matters can be profoundly challenging, mentally and emotionally. Burnout resulting in the erosion of wellbeing, high performance, career longevity, and financial health can occur. First be aware of negative impacts of working with highly distressed clients. Second become skillful in controlling and managing stressful situations for positive short and long term outcomes. This immersive workshop provides mindfulness training to reflect upon your current practice, personality and style and to then put into practice new approaches and strategies for more effective outcomes. The workshop focuses on three learning outcomes through the practice of mindfulness:
• advanced skills in modulating between the communication of empathy and strategic advice
• how to build greater capability in balancing strong boundaries whilst building rapport
• how to bring out the most constructive aspect of your client

The aim of day-long workshop is to confidently put into practice short, mid and long term strategies to manage vicarious stress. It is a must for lawyers dealing with difficult clients who wish to stay professionally resilient and successful in the long term.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.
