The COVID-19 pandemic only exacerbated many issues facing the judiciary, including an ever-increasing workload for judges due to unfilled judicial vacancies, insufficient funding for court operations, and tremendous public pressure to decide cases in a fair, efficient, and transparent manner.

Judges and court administrators alike encounter challenges in maintaining a healthy balance in responding to these extraordinary circumstances. Promoting mindfulness will cultivate non-judgmental awareness in the present moment paying attention to thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations that can be effective to stress-reduction in trying times. This webcast will explore the most current research on mindfulness, including the neuroscience underlying mindfulness and the effects of mindfulness on work-related skills and behaviors. Participants will learn how mindfulness can help them to cope with stress, enhance leadership and boost creativity, which is crucial for providing effective response to current challenges.

Faculty: Judge Jennifer Bailey, Judge Linda Diax, Judge Patricia Blackmon and Judge Lee Sinclair
