Seasons for Growth is an innovative, evidence-based change, loss and grief education program that draws on the metaphor of the seasons to understand the experience of grief. It builds the knowledge and skills necessary to strengthen social and emotional wellbeing following significant loss by:
- Exploring the impact of change and loss
- Learning about effective ways to respond and adapt
All Seasons for Growth programs are grounded in sound, person-centred educational principles.
As such, our programs have been shown to be a very effective education intervention. The programs do not provide counselling or psychotherapy.
The small group process, Seasons for Growth Program for Adults, provides opportunity for people who have experienced grief to be part of a group of 4-7 people with the companion/s. This process works through the seasons of grief: autumn, winter, spring, summer. This is a more personal situation in which one’s own grief will be touched on and it’s therefore advised that a period of about 12 months separate a significant change/loss and undertaking the process.
