Seasons for Growth

Seasons for Growth is a grief and loss education programme that aims to strengthen the emotional and social wellbeing of children and young people (aged 6-18) who have experienced loss, change or bereavement.

Seasons for Growth focuses on helping to develop an understanding of the impact of change, loss and grief and explores how we can learn to live with and grow from these experiences.

Inverclyde Educational Psychology Service has trained over 200 Seasons for Growth “Companions” within Inverclyde, including teachers, pupil support staff, and workers from social worker, health and the third sector. Companions routinely facilitate small groups for children and young people within the authority and continue to be supported by Educational Psychologists and trained Coordinators.
