Seasons for growth - change, loss and grief program training
Good Grief are running the 'Seasons for growth' Companion training for people working with Children and Young people. Seasons for Growth aims to strengthen the social and emotional well being of children and young people (aged 6-18) who are dealing with significant life changes. Companions are the people who lead Seasons for Growth groups. The role is not that of a teacher or therapist, but as a guide who leads and accompanies participants through the Seasons for Growth program. Companions may be school/agency staff, endorsed parent volunteers or other suitable adults who undertake a two day training workshop and subsequent accreditation with Good Grief to deliver our programs.
