Seasons for Growth

Seasons for Growth is an education and support programme which uses the imagery of the four seasons to explore the effects of change, loss and grief. It is a peer support programme which assists people of all ages to understand and manage the changes they experience when a significant loss occurs. It is based on the belief that change, loss and grief are a normal part of life. People need the opportunity to examine how significant loss experiences have had on their life. The programme is particularly relevant and effective in the prison setting where loss and change have had a significant contribution to offending and particularly recidivist offending.
