Life Improves When the Brain Moves

Do some of your clients, worrying about their financial woes, find themselves in a mental jam? For them (and you, as their legal counsel), is there little or no light at the end of the tunnel? The problem from a neuroscience perspective is that these individuals are energizing brain networks that cause them to get stuck, diverting their brain's mental energy away from the networks best able to find solutions. The same mental habits that may have brought your clients to bankruptcy in the first place may prevent them, and you, from reaching a positive outcome in bankruptcy proceedings. Learn tips and tricks to train your brain for better performance and simple solutions you can share with your clients to allow you to better represent them and their case.
