Confidential Kansas Lawyers Discussion Group


Resiliency is that skill which helps a person bounce back from difficult or stressful situations or events. Statistics indicate that lawyers experience depression or alcoholism at about double the rate for the general population so the development of resiliency traits is particularly beneficial to the profession.

A discussion group solely for lawyers meets in Topeka, Lawrence and Overland Park. The Kansas Lawyers Assistance Program facilitates the groups and Dr. Rae Sedgwick, who holds both a J.D. and a Ph.D. in Psychology, guides the groups. All the groups are confidential and there is no charge for participation.

  • Overland Park: meets each first and third Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m. at the law office located on the second floor of 10990 Quivira Road.
  • Topeka: meets on the third Friday of each month at noon at the KALAP office, 515 S. Kansas Ave., Suite 202. Group members are welcome to bring their lunch.
  • Lawrence: meets each first Friday at noon at the law office located at 900 Massachusetts, Suite 404. Group members are welcome to bring their lunch.
