Attorney Debra Chaves Norwood is a Certified Laughter Leader, Expert-Level
Debra Norwood is an attorney who is a resilience trainer, writer, motivational speaker and personal executive coach for attorneys and professionals. Her passion is psychoneuroimmunology, and she loves to share the good news about the neuroplasticity of the brain and how attorneys can protect their most valuable asset: their cognitive ability. She has designed an unconventional conflict resolution model that incorporates principles of mindfulness, brain health, and therapeutic humor and laughter to help acquire trust-‐building, anger management and conflict resolution skills. She created this model to enable attorneys to become more empathic and mindful in every aspect of their dealings with the courts, opposing counsel and clients. It is a program designed to empower lawyers to more joyfully connect with one another with authenticity, integrity, and with humor, in order to build trust in the system they co-‐create through their interactions with the public. Concerned about the rising depression and suicide rates among attorneys, Debra and her attorney husband, Dan Norwood, are coauthoring a book The Resilient Lawyer: Overcoming Challenges and Finding Joy in Modern Day Law Practice.
