MacKillop Seasons / Good Grief

Our programs are designed to help children, young people and adults understand and attend well to their grief following change and loss experiences. Our flagship program  "Seasons for Growth" has several different versions available for children, young people and adults. Launched in 1996, over 300,000 children, young people and adults have participated in Seasons for Growth programs in Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, England, and Wales.

Seasons for Growth is an innovative, evidence-based change, loss and grief education program that focuses on strengthening the social and emotional wellbeing of children, young people and adults following significant change and loss in their lives. Drawing on the metaphor of the seasons to understand the experience of grief, participants learn that they are not alone and are able to build their communication, decision making and problem-solving skills within the context of a safe and supportive peer group learning environment. Stormbirds provides an opportunity for children and young people who have experienced a natural disaster to share their experiences of change and loss in safe and creative ways, understand and attend to their feelings, and learn skills for adapting and recovering. This takes place in an atmosphere of like-to-like peer support.
