Seasons for Growth aims to build resilience and bring hope and confidence to adults who have experienced significant change or loss. Grief may be due to any number of experiences: bereavement, relationship breakdown, coming to a new country or experiencing a natural disaster. It may be a recent loss, or something that happened a long time ago.

The Seasons for Growth Adult Programme consists of two separate components:

Understanding Change

The Understanding Change, Loss and Grief seminar is designed for use in a wide variety of workplaces and community settings to deepen understandings of the nature and impact of change, loss and grief on the lives of groups or individuals.

The Exploring the Seasons of Grief programme creates a safe place for participants to learn together in small groups of 4-7 adults. The programme supports participants in learning about the personal impacts of change, loss and grief, whilst developing skills in communication, decision-making and problem-solving.  This helps to restore self confidence and self-esteem.

The Seasons for Growth programme is delivered by trained Companions in many schools, parishes, community organisations and local agencies across Scotland. If you are looking for a child or an adult group, please contact your local school or agency directly for details.
