Grief and Loss
Grief is a reaction we experience when there has been a loss. The loss can be the death of a loved one, a friend, pet, the end of a relationship, a job, or even a change in life (e.g., retirement). Everyone experiences grief and loss, however, many individuals differ in the process of grief they experience. Individuals experiencing grief from a loss may choose to react in a number of ways and no two people will respond to the same loss in the same way. Therefore, it is important to remember that there is no “correct” way to grieve or mourn a loss. However, there are 5 stages of grief that have been identified by psychologist Dr. Kubler-Ross. These stages of grief reflect the reactions many individuals experience as they realize the emotional affect this loss has had on them. The stages include:
