Stages of Grief in Crisis Counseling
Grief is the emotional response to loss. This includes death of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a limb, or divorce. Grief is the natural process of dealing with these losses. In 1969, Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross defined the stages of grief. These stages can help you understand the process and recognize whether you are making adequate progress through your grief. The process is not necessarily linear, however, and you may cycle through the various stages many times, while continuing to move closer to acceptance.
