24_Self Care for Healthcare Workers with Liz Jazwiec
Quint and Liz together again is something you won’t want to miss! Having worked together since 1993, it’s always fun to hear them talk about their early days together (where they often did NOT see eye to eye). It’s no surprise that they have both turned their attention to helping healthcare workers through the pandemic. Liz talks at length about WHY those in healthcare are reluctant to ask for help when they need it and the enormous guilt they feel around not being available for their children and their families. She offers tools and tactics for those struggling, as well as tips for leaders on what they can do to make a real difference in the lives of their employees. As a former ER nurse turned national speaker, you can bet Liz’s ideas are always super practical, highly impactful and easy to implement.
In May, Liz will be presenting at The Gratitude Symposium, a free month-long series of online presentations from 45 well-known experts meant to thank, teach, and inspire those in healthcare.
Her session is entitled “Stressed! Who me? Selfcare for the Selfless .” All you have to do is register to view the material, and you can watch the videos on your schedule. Information on how to register can be found at www.thegratitudesymposium.com/.

Stressed! Who me? Selfcare for the Selfless
In this important and timely presentation, Liz will focus on the importance of self-care as a critical and necessary survival skill for all of us deemed “essential workers.” As practiced and skilled that we are in helping others, often we are not so great at helping ourselves. In fact often just the term selfcare brings up feelings of discomfort and guilt. All participants will benefit from tactics and techniques shared in order to recognize stress in its early stages, implement both emotional and physical selfcare strategies and most importantly keep ourselves from sliding into negative self-destructive habits. She concludes with a straightforward approach to the importance of our collaboration with others in fostering a healthy work environment by focusing on our strengths as individuals as well as the abilities of our teams
Objectives – Discover the importance of selfcare as a necessary practice. – Acquire strategies in managing stress. – Discuss the impact of replacing guilt with pride.
