Current uncertainties have prompted new stress reactions that may have taken us off guard and our coping reactions and responses have a direct impact on our daily productivity and the overall mental health and wellbeing of ourselves and our family members.
Learn to recognise these new reactions and how to respond; not react.
CPD Live is an initiative by the Bar Council during the Movement Control Order, so that Members and pupils are not deprived of continuous learning even at this time.
Come join CPD Live at the comfort of your own home!
