Mastering Work-Life Balance: Building and Maintaining Resiliency
Workplace stress is at an all-time high, particularly in fast-paced, high-pressure work environments such as Law.

Participants will benefit from research in the areas of stress, work recovery and work-life balance to discover effective and specific techniques and strategies.
