An ABA CLE Webinar | November 9, 2017 | 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM ET
Judges must manage the competing stresses of their chosen profession. They are held to high standards ethically and professionally and are subject to many professional guidelines, standards, and expectations. Judges also face financial realities associated with compensation limitations of public service. While other professions and legal practitioners are in many ways more advanced in their recognition of such concerns, recent tragic events require the judiciary to examine these issues in more depth.
This webinar will explain the medical underpinnings of these issues as they relate to the professional pressures judges face.
A medical professional expert in psychiatry will explain the science and how his profession deals with similar issues. In addition, a leader in the field of practitioner mental health issues will suggest ways that judges can assist their colleagues and how the practitioner model can apply to the judiciary. Faculty will examine the demands of the profession and offer tools for dealing with those demands.
