Reviews Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ book `On Death and Dying` and describes the stages of dying and grief.
The information in this book is very familiar. Much of what Elisabeth Kubler-Ross said in this book has become part of common knowledge, taught in the schools as the stages of grief and loss. She developed her model through work with patients and through discussions in an interdisciplinary seminar. Her observations and experiences led her to conclude that dying patients pass through five distinct stages during their dying process.
