The three-day program, consisting of a total of 10.5 hours of training and group discussion, will introduce you to mindfulness and the science of mindfulness; cognitive, emotional and physical health benefits associated with practicing mindfulness; and the ways that mindfulness insights and exercises can play a meaningful role and be integrated in your life, professionally and personally.
Topics will include:
- The nature of the wandering mind, and of concentration and mindfulness practices,
- Mindfulness as a means of stress reduction, and working effectively with agitated emotions, ambiguous and challenging situations, and difficult people/interactions,
- The connection between mindfulness and ethical judgment and decision-making.
The training is based on Jurisight®, a mindfulness training program developed for legal professionals that has formed the basis for CLE programs since 2007, drawing on the language of the law to introduce mindfulness concepts and exercises and explore them in the context of legal practice.
