Webinar “Mindfulness and Stress-Reduction in the Delivery of Justice”

Judges and court administrators alike encounter challenges in maintaining a healthy balance in responding to extraordinary circumstances during national emergencies. Promoting mindfulness will cultivate nonjudgmental awareness in the present moment paying attention to thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations that can be effective to stress-reduction in trying times.

After this 120-minute webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Define “mindfulness” and explore the role of mindfulness in everyday life and the judicial decision-making process;
  • Identify the research that supports mindfulness;
  • Clarify the balance between the mindfulness practice, which by its essence is non-judgmental, and the judicial decision-making, which is judgmental;
  • Describe how they can utilize mindfulness to maintain focus, calm, and objectivity in the midst of pressures and challenges;
  • Summarize the benefits of mindfulness for both personal and professional life; and
  • Apply mindfulness to assist in decision-making, developing tolerance to uncertainty, and in enhancing leadership and creativity in challenging times.
