Kübler-Ross model. The model was first introduced by Swiss-American Psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in her 1969 book, On Death and Dying, and was inspired by her work with terminally ill patients.[1] Motivated by the lack of curriculum in medical schools on the subject of death and dying, Kübler-Ross began a project which examined death and those faced with it while working as an instructor at the University of Chicago's medical school.

Kübler-Ross' project evolved into a series of seminars which, along with patient interviews and previous research became the foundation for her book, and revolutionized how the U.S. medical field takes care of the terminally ill. In the decades since the publication of "On Death and Dying", the Kübler-Ross concept has become largely accepted by the general public; however, its validity has yet to be consistently supported by the majority of research studies that have examined it[citation needed].

Il a recueilli pendant plus de vingt ans les témoignages de personnes disant témoigner d'une expérience de mort imminente. Il a publié trois ouvrages populaires sur le sujet : La Vie après la vie (Life After Life, 1975), Lumières nouvelles sur la vie après la vie (Reflections on Life After life, 1977) et La Lumière de l'au-delà (The Light Beyond, 1988).

The Five Stages of Grief - Elisabeth Kübler-Ross & David Kessler

They were never meant to help tuck messy emotions into neat packages. They are responses to loss that many people have, but there is not a typical response to loss as there is no typical loss. Our grief is as individual as our lives. The five stages, denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with the one we lost. They are tools to help us frame and identify what we may be feeling. DENIALThis first stage of grieving helps us to survive the loss. ANGERAnger is a necessary stage of the healing process. BARGAININGBefore a loss, it seems like you will do anything if only your loved one would be spared.

DEPRESSIONAfter bargaining, our attention moves squarely into the present. ACCEPTANCEAcceptance is often confused with the notion of being “all right” or “OK” with what has happened.
