Feature in the Law Society Journal

The Law Society of Scotlan

12 Nov 2023

The Doctor Explains was delighted to offer our online Stress & Burnout for Leadership session to the fantastic Law Society Conference. Grateful to appear in their Journal following the conference . Here is what they said " Wellbeing was another focus for the day, conference coinciding with the launch of the Society’s Guide to Creating a Wellbeing Strategy. Dr Sigi Joseph and Dr Jane Catley (“The Doctor Explains”) addressed the question how leaders protect themselves from burnout and stress. Acknowledging that many people enjoy a “high challenge job”, they used a rainbow image to illustrate that you function best at the top of the curve – beware if you start to slip down towards the warning signs of, on the one hand, delayed responses and emotional withdrawal, and on the other, heightened anxiety, difficulty focusing and proneness to tears or rapid speech. They followed with tips on maintaining good mental and physical health, and advice to step back and get a perspective on your life, perhaps with the aid of a colleague."
