Author, a Psychologist and Formerly Practicing Lawyer, Addresses Pressing Issues
NEW HAVEN, Conn., July 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Traci Cipriano today announced the publication of her book, The Thriving Lawyer (Routledge), addressing challenges of the legal profession and offering strategies to promote well-being and healthy work environments.
Cipriano, an Assistant Clinical Professor, Yale Department of Psychiatry, utilizes the unique perspective afforded by her doctoral education, training, and experiences in psychology and law.
“This book is intended to benefit individual lawyers, their organizations, and professionals who support them, by educating, motivating, and promoting self-care and healthy work environments,” Cipriano writes. Recognizing the law is a challenging profession, she believes changes can be made with an eye toward sustainability. “We are not going to eliminate stress in the legal profession, nor do we want to, but we can do more to foster mental and physical health and healthy work environments.”
“Dr. Cipriano incorporates in an informative, compelling narrative, pathways for translating the concept of wellbeing into pragmatic actions. Lawyers, law students and law schools and those who give counsel and treatment to the legal community will find this book a valued and lasting resource.” —Madelon Baranoski, Professor & Director, Forensic Psychology, Yale School of Medicine
“Through accurate insights and analysis that demonstrate an intimate understanding of the challenges so many committed attorneys face, The Thriving Lawyer offers a helpful roadmap for critical individual and institutional change needed to improve lawyer well-being. This book is a must read for both attorneys and HR professionals across all legal organizations.” – Claire Coleman, State of Connecticut Consumer Counsel; former BigLaw associate
