What Are the Five Stages of Grief?

Decades ago, psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross identified five stages of grief based on her work with terminally ill patients. They are: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Although these five stages are quite common, Kubler-Ross emphasized that not everyone will experience every stage and that these stages may not progress in a linear fashion. For example, you may experience depression at the cemetery, which may be followed with anger later on.

You can explore these stages of grief further by listening to this in-depth video. This grief expert discusses how the process of grief can help mourners adjust to the new realities in their lives.
