21 Feb 2019 - Resilience Through Play (Organised by SCCA)
In the fast-changing environment, being able to adapt quickly is the foundation for resilience. Resilience is a person's capacity for stress-related growth. Lawyers who develop resilience, gain many benefits, including the ability to tolerate change, stress, uncertainty and other types of adversity more effectively. They develop healthy coping strategies which are more likely to mitigate the impact of stress and adversity.
Attendees will gain improved self-awareness of the topic. They will also understand better how they can personally respond to certain situations and get a better understanding of their own personal resilience level.
