On Death & Dying by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (Book Review #15) – Review Tales by Jeyran MainThis model was originally laid out in her groundbreaking work, On Death and Dying , written in and based on her experiences working with patients dying of terminal illness. Today, even people completely unfamiliar with the field of psychiatry could rattle off those five stages. Many experts today largely disavow the five stages model, not because the emotions it describes are inaccurate, but rather because understanding grief as a series of discrete stages is limiting. None of this is strange or unhealthy, according to grief counselors and experts. This is surprising, considering the model is most typically applied to the grieving that accompanies the death of a family member or close friend. Few people before her had done serious work in the field of grief.
On Death & Dying by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (Book Review #15)
When my brother died, I experienced grief in a different way than I had in the past. I was suddenly in a situation that no one should ever have to go through — the death of a sibling. This model is often used by medical professionals as they attempt to help people cope with their own eminent death and the death of someone close to them. However, at a high level the process is of someone moving through these stages. Shock is the initial response. Shock can only last a short time because of its very nature.
