About This Webinar

The pressure of law school can make many law students feel so exhausted and uncertain that, regardless of how well they do academically, they still feel like failures or imposters whose demise must be just around the corner. The science of positive psychology has found that teaching resilience skills can help people effectively respond to stress and bounce back from setbacks. One way that science has found to enhance resilience is through the “growth mindset” framework. Mindsets relate to our belief about ability and potential. Growth mindset students view setbacks as only information about their current progress—not a reflection on their self-worth, intelligence, or ability. Research has linked the growth mindset with significant benefits: Students’ mindsets have a direct influence on their grades as well as their psychological health and resilience. This webinar will teach law students about how to enhance their resilience by developing a growth mindset.
