Episode 083: “Living Centered and Overcoming Medical Trauma”

Featuring Bob Hutchins MSc

Are we all insecurely attached to our phones? This week Hannah and Mickenzie are joined by writer and Behavioral and Organizational Psychologist Bob Hutchins to explore this question. The three sat down for a fascinating conversation about technology, media trauma, attachment, and the impact the last couple of years have had on our collective and individual understanding of grief, loss, and connection.

But don’t worry, this isn’t another “throw away your phone” conversation; after years of working in media and studying psychology, Bob is actually hopeful that we can all use media to better connect with ourselves, others, and humanity.

Introducing Onsite Online—a new, enhanced learning environment to help you optimize your relationships, your health, your leadership, and your life. 

But like many who found themselves nudged into innovation during the last few years, the pandemic fast-tracked our digital dreams. As a result, we launched our digital efforts with a few practical resources to help you navigate unprecedented times and a heightened sense of loneliness, isolation, stress, and loss of control. 

While we proudly stand behind the content from our world-class team, we wanted to enhance our online environment to help optimize your healing and growth by infusing a little more of that “healing hospitality” that Onsite is known for into our digital experience. 

This improved learning environment features greater interactivity with the course material, a better user experience, and access to enhanced resources within a (new!) community environment.
