Seasons for Growth Training
Seasons for Growth is a programme for children, young people or adults who have experienced significant change or loss.
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 on our lives, and explore how we can learn to live with and grow from these experiences.
“The training (Seasons for growth) has benefited me a lot. I learnt a lot during the training – I didn’t know what grief was before and I learnt a lot about this and how it can affect different people in different ways. This has helped me understand my grief issues better. I am no longer afraid to talk about things and share my feelings. The group enabled me to identify my own feelings and I felt safe with the rest of the group and trusted everyone.” (carers who took part in Seasons for Growth course)
