On Grief and Grieving: Finding the Meaning of Grief Through the Five Stages of Loss
The author’s early classic, On Death and Dying, (also available, $16.95) began as a theoretical book - an interdisciplinary study of our fear of death and our inevitable acceptance of it. It introduced the world to the now-famous five stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. On Grief and Grieving applies these stages to the process of grieving and weaves together theory, inspiration, and practical advice based on Kübler-Ross's and Kessler's experiences. It includes sections on sadness, hauntings, dreams, coping, children, healing, isolation, and even the subject of sex during grief. This is an invaluable aid to those coping and trying to heal from the loss of a parent or loved one.
