Join us for a collegial discussion of the human dimension of judging and evidenced based strategies to sustain you in your role
  
Judicial work is meaningful and rewarding. It is also complex, demanding, and at times emotionally draining. In the first 2 years following appointment the intensities of judicial life are often particularly acute.
 
Most judicial officers agree there are two things that help: knowing what to expect, and establishing healthy practices early on for managing the inevitable sources of stress that will arise. 
 
Drawing upon latest relevant research, this interactive and experiential program will equip you with the knowledge and skills to manage the personal challenges of transitioning to the judicial role, and to approach your judicial career with optimism and confidence. We will discuss the known pressure-points in the work, and also the opportunities for growth and fulfilment. You will leave the program with a personal wellbeing plan for your judicial career ahead.  

This cross-jurisdictional program is by invitation only. Heads of Jurisdiction will nominate recent appointees from their jurisdiction to attend.

As we hope that the program can be delivered in person, and to comply with likely density restrictions, the program will run twice, in groups of 20 participants. If the program is unable to be run in person, it will be delivered online.

The program will be run on the following dates:

  • 30 November 2021, 9.30am - 4.30pm
  • 2 December 2021, 9.30am - 4.30pm
