Proposed 4 week Bereavement Group programme from Seasons for Growth- Richmond, starting 10th February

The Seasons for Growth Adult Program was first launched in 1999 in Australia and is now run in the U.K. and New Zealand. Since that time it has proven to be an invaluable resource for building resilience and fostering social and emotional wellbeing in thousands of adults across Australia and overseas for people who have bereaved.


Unlike the WAVES programme,  Seasons for Growth is not a suicide bereavement programme,  but can nevertheless provide support and skills after a suicide. Its suggested  that  the programme would be  less suitable for those in  the early raw stages of grief (i.e.  no  sooner than  6 months after a bereavement).  Note that the programme is not  counselling or therapy. The Seasons for Growth programme  will  consist of  4  2  ½ hour sessions over a 4 week period, with  3 to  7  participants. (we currently have 2 people interested).

Karen Moynagh, a trained Seasons for Growth  facilitator, has offered  to  run  a group  programme  for those bereaved by  suicide in Nelson in the New Year, starting in  early February.

The total cost for each  participant will  be  $25,  to  purchase  the  resource book  for the programme, which  you can  keep.

If you would be interested in  the Season for Growth  course in the new year, or would be interested in further information about the course,  please contact  Paul  at  [email protected]  or Karen  at  [email protected]

The four, two and half hour sessions will  be facilitated by Karen (hopefully  at  the Richmond Hub, Queen  Street, Richmond)  from  7 pm to 9:30 pm,  starting the week of 10th Feb.
