As lawyers working in the criminal and family law system, we often come across clients with drug related problems. In practicing the law (particularly criminal law), it is important to have a working understanding of the different types of drugs and how they affect the body. This workshop will cover the different categories of drugs and various types of drugs in the market, as well as how they affect a person’s behaviours. (PS)

What is the risk of re-offending? The psychological understanding of risk is oftentimes different from the legal criteria. What do the experts mean when they refer to static and dynamic risks?

This training will help lawyers understand and recognise the five stages of burnout, the initial symptoms, how to appropriately respond, and avoid experiencing a full-scale burnout. The training will help individuals manage the pressures of the legal profession in a manner that is sustainable to their health and well-being and aids them in performing at their best. (PS)

Many professionals struggle with the transition into management and leadership positions; burning themselves out, stifling performance, or inadvertently causing good talent to leave the firm.

On one hand, stress and feeling under pressure shows that we perceive what we are doing as important. However, we can also breed doubt in our ability if we let ruminative thinking take hold.

Change can be disruptive and detrimental to performance and mindset. This program is ideal for teams and organisations with expected changes approaching.

Human beings are social animals. Our bodies are inevitably communicating signals to others around us whether we are aware of it or not. It is even more important in an office, where we work with others throughout most of the day. How can we communicate our needs to colleagues, be it our peers, superiors, or juniors, in an effective way? This workshop will aim to provide guidance on effective use of verbal and written communication within your firm. (PS)
