This webcast will provide an overview of a wellness program designed to help judges, commissioners, and hearing officers to develop or improve eating habits, work-out routine, and seek help with alcohol and drug addictions and other problems that can affect their license. Good mental, physical and eating health habits can reduce stress, and the New Year is a great time to reflect on ways to develop a healthier lifestyle.

Why is this topic relevant?

A number of attorneys and judges have found themselves in violation of fiduciary duties, i.e. money misappropriation, fraud, alcohol and drug abuse. Being a judge limits the amount of information you can share with the public, but dealing with the stress of the job is very important. This webcast will also include ideas for offering encouragement to other judges in similar circumstances.

Objectives

After this webcast, you will be able to:

  • Identify areas of concern in regards to judicial behavior, i.e. trust accounts, etc.
  • Describe the importance of maintaining good mental and physical health, and developing good eating habits.
  • List two community contacts that can help judges with problem behavior.

Instructors

Suzette Carlisle, Administrative Law Judge for the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation, runner; Dr. Steven Haymon, behavior and mental health expert and author; Dina Chapman, nutritionist; and Kevin O’Leary, personal fitness trainer and owner of I AM Training
