The AIDS Legal Referral Panel is providing this free MCLE training to educate attorneys on the legal issues faced by people living with HIV/AIDS.

This class provides an introduction to the science of mindfulness, including how meditation can reduce the physiological symptoms of stress. We'll examine the relationship of stress to substance abuse, and discuss ways to use mindfulness as a stress-management strategy. This class includes a brief, 5-minute meditation, but is focused on understanding the science of meditation and mindfulness, and its practical application to your own life.

Presented by Kim Nicol, Esq., Attorney at Law.
