Seasons for Growth is a successful education program which explores the effects of change, loss and grief. This change maybe caused by: loss of a loved one, separation, relocation or change in relationships. The program recognises that change often hurts, can be confusing, frustrating or threatening. It also recognises that sometimes we need support in understanding and coping with the effects of change and loss.
