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.
