Seasons for Growth is a loss and grief education programme catering for young people aged 6 - 18 years. It is based on the belief that grief is a normal and valuable part of life itself and that children and adolescents need to be provided with the opportunity to examine how grief as a result of death, separation or divorce, has impacted on their lives. The educative process underpinning Seasons for Growth provides the opportunity for each participant to integrate, at his/her developmental level, the appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes to understand and to cope with loss and grief.  

The programme uses the imagery of the four seasons to illustrate that grief is cyclical, not a linear journey with a clear end. Trained “Companions” facilitate small groups where participants share their experiences, and support and learn from one another. Peer support is a key element of the programme. 

The purpose of this two day workshop is to equip teachers to assist young people to understand the grief that is experienced because of the loss of a parent or significant other through death, separation or divorce. Attendance at the Seasons for Growth course will enable and qualify educators to run a Seasons for Growth peer support group for young people within the school setting. 

The course will be led by Mary Lappin, a Lecturer in Religious Education at the School of Education, University of Glasgow.  Further information can be found at  http://www.notredamecentre.org.uk/seasons-for-growth/
