Depression is a necessary and vital part of the grieving process. It is also perfectly normal and appropriate reaction to the loss of a loved one


Denial is used as a coping mechanism in order help others deal with the reailty of what has happened after the death of a loved one.


In bargaining people begin to think of "what if" or "if only" situations. By trying to negotiate, people are trying to avoid the pain of losing the one they loved. This leads to people to blame themselves for what had happened.

Acceptance does not mean that a person is okay or alright but it means that they have accepted the reality that their loved one is gone. They have accepted to live the life they have without them.


Anger:Anger is utilized to anchor ourselves in order to understand how we truly feel. It helps us grasp on to some structure after feeling lost.
