BREAKOUT SESSION 5 | GAL: Compassion Fatigue

As we constantly pour ourselves into our work, the focus is typically on the client, the facts and the law. Rarely do lawyers recognize the cumulative effect that years of conflict and dark subject matter have on us. This session identifies the mental, emotional and physiological effects that family law has on our psyche, and discusses some practical coping mechanisms that can help mitigate those effects.
