GALSS Seasons for Growth Invitation to Parents/Carers

Lindsay Upton from Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS)

Change and loss are issues that affect all of us at some stage in our lives. At Seasons for Growth, we recognise that when changes occur in families through death, separation, divorce or related circumstances, young people may benefit from learning how to manage these changes effectively. We are therefore offering a very successful education programme called Seasons for Growth. This programme is facilitated in small groups and is based on research that highlights the importance of social support and the need to practise new skills to cope effectively with change and loss. The programme focuses on issues such as self-esteem, managing feelings, problem solving, decision making, effective communication and support networks.
Seasons for Growth Is offering an afterschool programme running for 6 weeks and each weekly session is 90 minutes. The program concludes with a "Celebration" session.
Seasons for Growth will commence in term 2. If you think your son or daughter would benefit from Seasons for Growth we would encourage you to talk to him/her first about this. Should he/she decide to participate please call Lesley on 022 069 7384 otherwise email: griefandloss@aIIsaintshowick.org.nz
Grief and Loss Support Services in Howick is pleased to be able to offer this important programme and we are confident that it will be a valuable learning experience for those who request to be involved.
WHEN: Wednesday 15th May 2019 4.00pm- 5.30pm (Afternoon tea provided)
WHERE: All Saints Community Centre (Downstairs Room) Cook Street Howick.
