    “The Man Who Invented Christmas: How Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol Rescued His Career and Revived Our Holiday Spirits” by Les Standiford

    TOPIC: “The Man Who Invented Christmas: How Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol Rescued His Career and Revived Our Holiday Spirits” by Les Standiford

    https://www.goodreads.com/book...

    As uplifting as the tale of Scrooge itself, this is the story of how one writer and one book revived the signal holiday of the Western world.

    Just before Christmas in 1843, a debt-ridden and dispirited Charles Dickens wrote a small book he hoped would keep his creditors at bay. His publisher turned it down, so Dickens used what little money he had to put out A Christmas Carol himself. He worried it might be the end of his career as a novelist.

    The book immediately caused a sensation. And it breathed new life into a holiday that had fallen into disfavor, undermined by lingering Puritanism and the cold modernity of the Industrial Revolution. It was a harsh and dreary age, in desperate need of spiritual renewal, ready to embrace a book that ended with blessings for one and all.

    With warmth, wit, and an infusion of Christmas cheer, Les Standiford whisks us back to Victorian England, its most beloved storyteller, and the birth of the Christmas we know best. The Man Who Invented Christmas is a rich and satisfying read for Scrooges and sentimentalists alike.

    SPEAKER/ORGANIZATION:  Royal Berg will lead our discussion

  • Secondary Trauma in the Legal Profession (12/09/20)

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 12/09/2020 at 2:00 PM (CST)

    This seminar, we’ll dissect our understanding of how trauma functions in the brain, and how a client’s trauma often presents itself throughout the course of representation

    Trauma is increasingly at the front and center of our current cultural conversations surrounding mental health, and breaking down the science behind it can significantly boost our comprehension of how it functions in society. Lawyers frequently encounter trauma in the clients they represent, and absorption of that trauma can threaten the lawyer’s own mental health. In this seminar, we’ll dissect our understanding of how trauma functions in the brain, and how a client’s trauma often presents itself throughout the course of representation. There are no quick fixes when it comes to mental health, but we’ll also discuss methods lawyers can utilize to minimize the impact of secondary trauma on their own mental health, as well as methods to lessen the likelihood of re-traumatization for their client during legal proceedings.
