Event description

Description

Seasons for Growth is an innovative grief and loss education program that uses the metaphor of the seasons to illustrate the experience of grief. It strengthens the social and emotional wellbeing of adults, children and young people (aged 6-18) who are dealing with significant life changes by:

• Exploring the impact of change and loss on every-day life

• Learning new ways to respond to those changes

Trained adult 'Companions' facilitate each program in small groups of 4 to 7 participants who support and learn from each other through conversation and participation in age-appropriate, engaging activities.

Participants can choose either 9 weekly one-hour sessions or 4 weekly two-hour sessions (plus one shorter session for celebration).

Participants learn that they are not alone in experiencing the effects of change, loss and grief, and are able to build their communication, decision making and problem-solving skills with a supportive peer group.

The Seasons for Growth program helps to normalise participants' grief experiences, increases protective factors (including building personal resilience and social skills), and minimises some risk factors (including isolation) that influence mental health and wellbeing.

It does not provide counselling or therapy.
