LISTEN: Fight, Flight or Freeze
Guest: Dr. Isaiah Pickens, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Founder, iOpening Enterprises
Law students can be notoriously hard on themselves amid the pressure cooker that is law school. That stress, says Dr. Isaiah Pickens, manifests in a number of ways, including feelings of imposterism that can be hard to shake.
2020 certainly hasn't made the experience any easier, but Pickens asserts there are still important approaches that strengthen the mental muscles that foster resilience in the face of difficult challenges. He shares key learnings from his recent student-focused training hosted by UW Law.
