Seasons for Growth for the Parent – Bereavement


The Seasons for Growth programme provides an opportunity for parents/caregivers to better understand the experience of death, separation and divorce, and bereavement from a child’s perspective, and to explore ideas and strategies that they may wish to consider as they support their children in transitioning through these family changes.

The programme aims to strengthen the social and emotional wellbeing of people dealing with significant life changes by exploring the impact of change and loss on every-day-life and learning new ways to respond to these changes.

The Seasons for Growth Adult Programme may be an appropriate next step for parents/caregivers who wish to spend time exploring their own change and loss experience and learn coping skills to manage and continue moving forward.
