Lisa Oland, LPC will be facilitating two parts of an experiential stress management series that are geared toward helping attendees in the legal profession manage stress. Lisa’s knowledge of legal professional’s role comes from her previous position working as the mental health court liaison for Lane County Treatment Court. She has also worked as a counselor for a number of legal professionals, and has heard first hand the types of struggles judges, prosecutors, and those in private practice face. In this two part workshop series, she will teach and demonstrate evidence-based skills, using specific stressors she has heard about from legal professionals she has worked with in therapy and in previous workshops.

In Part One, Lisa will provide education about the Cognitive Behavioral model, the body’s response to stress, the ways Core Beliefs form and keep people stuck in unhelpful cycles, and teach attendees how to identify their deepest values. She will have attendees practice these new tools when discussing and working on their current stressors.
