OASIS® for Lawyers is an evidence-based program that uses scientific research on the brain's neuroplasticity to design strategies tailored to the needs of busy lawyers to change harmful responses to stress. Studies show that the brain has the ability to increase focus, productivity, and resilience after using similar strategies.

Statistics on elevated stress levels of lawyers demonstrate that those working in the legal profession are more than twice as likely to experience depression and substance abuse as the general population. Stress and depression are also risk factors for heart disease, cancer, and increased likelihood of stroke. Using the neuroplasticity of the brain, this program has developed a set of techniques to relieve stress and anxiety and improve health and balance.



Furthermore, according to the American Institute of Stress, https://www.stress.org/workplace-stress, “the price tag for U.S. Industry is estimated at over 300 billion annually as a result of: Accidents, absenteeism, employee turnover, diminished productivity, etc.

Last, but not least, the American Bar Association has created the Working Group to Advance Well-Being in the Legal Profession https://www.americanbar.org/groups/lawyer_assistance/working-group_to_advance_well-being_in_legal_profession/. Oasis® for Lawyers is in alignment with this initiative.
