As maintaining good mental health and coping well with stress helps lawyers avoid claims, LAWPRO financially supports the Law Society’s Member Assistance Program (MAP), which is administered by Homewood Human Solutions (HHS).

As of September 16, 2014, e-Learning courses offered on the HHS site will now be approved for the LAWPRO Risk Management credit. The approved e-Learning courses address issues including managing stress, managing alcohol and substance consumption, coping with financial pressures, and managing working relationships.

All the e-Learning courses are 2 hours, with a 60 minute video (a voice-over with slides you can navigate to different ‘chapters’) and a downloadable PDF workbook (a few examples are attached below) that takes an estimated 60 minutes to complete. Each also offers links to additional resources that tie into the subject.

Here are the e-Learning courses currently available:
