This course trains people to become Companions (facilitators) to deliver the Seasons for Growth Children and Young People's Program.

Seasons for Growth is a small-group loss and grief education program. The Children and Young People’s Program strengthens the social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people (aged 6–18) who are dealing with significant loss or change. This may include the death of a loved one, parental divorce or separation, the experience and aftermath of natural disaster, moving house or school, as well as many other life changes and losses.

Small groups of 4–7 children work with a trained adult Companion (facilitator) who supports the children in learning new ways to share, think about and respond to the changes and losses in their lives. Children learn that they are not alone in dealing with the effects of change, loss and grief. They build their understanding and communication, decision making and problem solving skills as part of a supportive peer group.
