Seasons for growth

Seasons for Growth is a program for children who have experienced significant change or loss. It is a group that consists of four to eight children who meet once a week for 45 minutes over a ten week period. Here they will spend time with children who have had similiar experiences, with a focus on developing resilience and promoting social and emotional wellbeing.

Seasons for Growth is based on the belief that change, loss and grief are a normal and valuable part of life. We examine the impact of changes such as death, separation, divorce, and natural disaster upon our lives, and explore how we can learn to live with and grow from these experiences.

Imagery of the four seasons is used to illustrate that grief is cyclical, not a linear journey with a clear end.
