Mind the gap: mindful practices for the female lawyer

Date - 21 June 2018
Venue - Bartier Perry

Bartier Perry is proud to sponsor this Women Lawyers Association of NSW event.

Women in law these days are some of, if not, the greatest multi-taskers of our society – juggling careers, social life & motherhood. This is all within the context of a society with advancing technologies and where being a female carries various social pressures never felt before this time.

Please join Dwana Walsh of Alignlife to explore this issue and how this constant “attention hopping” behaviour contributes to fatigue, distress and poor mental health. Dwana will delve into the science and evidence as to how the mind deteriorates or underperforms as a result of being an expert “multitasker”, as well as introducing techniques on how to address those issues.

This seminar will touch on mindfulness and specifically how being more mindful translates to the lifestyle of a female lawyer. Dwana will look at practices that can be simply and practically introduced by female lawyers to help counter the negative effects produced as a result of attention deficit disorder (a disorder which plagues us all in the modern age). Dwana’s presentation promises to be engaging and interactive, with practical advice on remaining well in the law.
