2:00 – 3:00 p.m Walking Through Resistance, presented by Jennifer D. Angier
Mental health professional and addictions counselor Jennifer Angier will provide you the unique tools to use in recognizing the progression of an addict's journey from active disease through recovery.

3:00 – 4:00 p.m.  Aging Choices and Caregiving & The Type A Personality, presented by Sara Beth Warne of Aging in Place Services, Elizabeth Moss, President and Founder, WholeCare Connections, Inc., and Cindy Laverty, The Care Company  
Most people and their families fail to make choices and plans until a health issue or death occurs, forcing them into quick changes – often out of their hands.  Making these important decisions about health care can become confusing for families during a crisis and when taking place in the middle of already complicated lives.  We should choose now how we plan for our aging years.

The role of Caregiver creates constant conflict for “Type A” personalities.  A Type A personality is inclined to control situations, fix what is wrong, and meet deadlines, while a Caregiver quickly discovers that there is little or no control when it comes to caring for a loved one.  Caregiving teaches each of us to live life on life’s terms, and that's not always a lesson easily accepted.  In this presentation, Family Caregiver Coach Cindy Laverty shares the ins of outs of managing the caregiving journey without losing your mind.

4:15 – 4:35 p.m.  Networking: 7 Effective Steps in Asking for a Referral, presented by Damon Rawls, Damon Rawls Coaching and Consulting, LLC  
Asking for referrals is so effective and FREE, so why do we avoid asking?  Are you begging for business or sharing your passion?  Come and learn how to improve your bottom line through better networking with tips from experienced trainer and business coach, Damon Rawls.  

4:35 – 4:55 p.m.  Alternative Practice Models:  Part-Time Practice in a Full-Time World, presented by Lorna Kennedy, of CLIO
Being in the office used to be a requirement for being productive and profitable.  In order to continue to draw in the best talent, firms are required to adopt models such as virtual practices and flexible working hours.  Come and learn about the alternative models that will help firms and their attorneys restore balance to their personal lives and tap into unrealized resources for building a firm’s practice 

4:55 – 5:15 p.m.  Supporting Our Young Lawyers and Improving Our Profession through Effective Mentoring, presented by Jackie Dixon, Esq. 
If you read an article or story about individuals who are leaders in their field, almost without fail they give credit for their success to someone who mentored them early on in their career.  The same is no less true for lawyers.  Jackie Dixon, past TLAW President and a member of the Tennessee Bar Association’s Mentoring Committee, will talk about the benefits that a quality mentoring relationship can have on both the mentor and mentee and why programs like the TBA’s Mentoring Program are critical.
