In On Grief and Grieving authors Elisabeth K|bler-Ross and David Kessler applied the five stages of death -- denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance -- to the grieving process and composed a book about hope, inspiration, practical advice and healing. It looks at the way we experience the process of grief and equips us with the tools to cope with life and loss.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross's On Death and Dying changed the way we talk about the end of life. Before her own death in 2004, she and David Kessler completed On Grief and Grieving, which looks at the way we experience the process of grief.
Just as On Death and Dying taught us the five stages of death -- denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance -- On Grief and Grieving applies these stages to the grieving process and weaves together theory, inspiration, and practical advice, including sections on sadness, hauntings, dreams, isolation, and healing.
