Bonus Episode “Collective Grief and the Healing Power of Connection”
Featuring Heather Schnoebelen
In light of the events that took place at Covenant School in Nashville last week, we felt compelled to address the collective grief and trauma reverberating through our communities. Onsite’s vision is an emotionally well world—humanity reconnected—and we long to see humans come together now more than ever. In this special bonus episode, Nicole sits down with Heather Schnoebelen, trauma therapist and head of the Clinical Services Team here at Onsite, to discuss how we might begin to move forward together in these coming days.

ONSITE’S GIFT TO YOU – OUR DIGITAL GRIEF COURSE
In The Ways We Grieve: Understanding the Emotional and Biological Process That Binds Us All, Licensed Clinical Social Worker Cindy Westcott uses over 30 years of experience to guide us in the predictable patterns that emerge through the process of grief, and how these patterns show up, from the overwhelming losses to our smaller bumps and bruises, and everything in between.
You’ll discover that:
- Grief is universal AND highly personal.
- Grief takes as much time as your body needs it to take.
- You can trust your body to tell you what you need in grief.
- You have permission to engage with your grief in ways that bring healing for you.
- You don’t have to lose yourself to grief.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
- Apply a new, more expansive, more inclusive definition of the term “grief” in order to identify and respond to grief and the biological reactions involved in the grieving process.
- Practice grace and understanding for yourself in difficult times of grief.
- Identify the stages of grief and signs of becoming stuck in the process.
