Published USA, 2005
In her first, seminal book, On Death and Dying, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross identified five stages of dying: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. In the years that followed, it became evident that these stages applied not only to the process of accepting death, but also to accepting other difficult and catastrophic life experiences, such as losing a loved one. In this, her final book completed shortly before her death, Kubler-Ross and David Kessler revisit the five stages in order to create a deeply empathetic and accessible guide for those left behind. With compassion and understanding, the authors deliver insights and advice designed to help readers rebalance their lives and find the courage to continue. Featuring sections on sadness, hauntings, dreams, coping, isolation, children and healing, the book fuses practical wisdom with spiritual insight as it forges a path to wholeness.
David Kessler is a recognized leader in the field of hospice and palliative care in the USA.
