ACS Madison: We Weren't Born to Be Bystanders

Madison Public Library-Central, 3rd Floor, Madison, WI

"The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times." Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist.

Attorneys, like all humans, are not immune from trauma. In fact, we are often immersed in the trauma of others causing us to suffer from vicarious trauma. So how do we - as lawyers and judges - get up after being knocked down? How do we keep the faith in turbulent times? How do we build resiliency?

This presentation will offer suggestions to help answer these questions. And hopefully you will walk away with the realization that YOUR mental health and well-being are worthy of being cherished, protected and nurtured.


Hon. Jill Karofsky, Justice, Wisconsin Supreme Court
