Seasons For Growth Program

Seasons for Growth is an evidence-based 8-week change, loss and education program that uses the imagery of the seasons to illustrate the experience of grief and build the knowledge and skills necessary to strengthen social and emotional wellbeing, following a significant loss.

Change and loss are issues that affect all of us at some stage in our lives. At JH Kids we recognise that when changes occur in families through death, separation, divorce, and related circumstances, young people may benefit from learning how to manage these changes effectively. Seasons for Growth is a small group program that combines psychology and education with peer support, within a person centred learning approach. It uses the metaphor of the seasons to explore the cyclic nature of grief, and is underpinned by William Worden’s tasks of grieving.

This program contains developmentally appropriate discussions and activities. Seasons for Growth normalises participants’ experiences, and can increase protective factors (including building personal resilience and social skills) while minimising some risk factors (including isolation) that influence mental health and wellbeing. The program also supports the development of communication, decision making and problem solving skills.
Suitable for children in Years 3 - 6.
