Counseling and Coaching for Attorneys
Our system of laws has a core objective of creating and enforcing concrete standards of acceptable behavior in most areas of human interaction. This objective provides a baseline of certainty and predictability that allows society to somewhat effectively function.
To arrive at these objective, enforceable standards, attorneys are trained to logically analyze and advocate concrete positions based primarily on objective facts. This training largely dismisses aspects of human existence that are less concrete and highly conceptual.
If not held in check through conscious attention and effort, attorneys often begin to approach most aspects of life with a highly concrete and conceptual orientation, the byproduct of which can cause attorneys to become detached from less conceptual aspects of being. This detachment can ultimately lead to challenges that may include depression, relationship difficulties, and substance abuse.
