    The legal profession is an inherently challenging field requiring its members to zealously fight to overcome challenges for both their clients and themselves. The intense demands of the profession combined with the high rates of substances abuse and mental health issues confirmed by recent studies makes cultivating healthy skills for overcoming the challenges and stressors of our field a MUST.

    Participants in this program will learn what LAP is, why attorneys are a vulnerable population, how the science of resiliency is useful for attorneys, and how to cultivate resiliency to better “roll with the punches” in one’s professional and personal life especially given the current state of the world and the nation. 


    Dr. Diana Uchiyama is the Executive Director of the Illinois Lawyers’ Assistance Program (LAP).  Prior to joining LAP, she was the Administrator of Psychological Services for DuPage County and ran a licensed outpatient substance use treatment program, including a Mentally Ill Substance Abuse (MISA) program and Seeking Safety program for individuals with substance use problems, who were also trauma survivors.  While at DuPage County she also ran a 26-week Domestic Batterer Intervention Program for a court mandated population of clients. 

    Dr. Uchiyama has also worked for the Kane County Diagnostic Center, as both a Staff Psychologist and Juvenile Drug Court Coordinator, and has an extensive background doing court ordered evaluations including psychological, sanity, fitness, fitness to parent, and sex offender evaluations.  She is a licensed sex offender evaluator in the State of Illinois.   She has implemented numerous changes to court ordered programs both in Kane and DuPage County and is a SAMSHA certified trauma informed care trainer.  Dr. Uchiyama also conducts therapy with adults and adolescents, is a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and has an Advanced Mindfulness Training Certificate, teaching mindfulness skills to others in order to increase their wellbeing.

    Prior to obtaining her masters and doctorate in Clinical Psychology, Dr. Uchiyama was an Assistant Public Defender in Cook County working in various felony courtrooms at 26th and California in Chicago  for over a decade. She obtained her law degree from Pepperdine University School of Law.

Financial Hardship Policy: The Board of the Illinois Real Estate Lawyers Association works to keep its program costs low in order to provide quality professional education at a reasonable price. The Board realizes that even with these low costs, there may be attorneys who, due to financial hardship, are unable to attend meetings. In light of this a simple financial hardship policy is being placed in effect. Attorneys must contact the Board, in writing, with a request for reduced meeting rates for a period of time. The letter should contain an explanation of the hardship. The Board will act on this request at its next meeting. "At the door" requests for financial hardship decisions will not be accepted.  Contact IRELA PO Box 4956 Oak Brook, IL 60522-4956; or via e-mail at info@irela.org
