Stages Of Grief Refuted As Inaccurate and Dangerous By Grief Recovery Institute Founders In Skeptic Magazine Article
Date:10/16/2008

When people experience grief related to death, divorce, or even the loss of jobs or financial security, the mental health and medical professionals they consult for help often apply the inaccurate Stages Theory of Grief. At long last, Grief Recovery pioneers, Russell Friedman and John W. James, clear up the decades-old debate about what grief really is what it definitely isn't.

Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2006 -- At long last, Grief Recovery pioneers, Russell Friedman and John W. James, clear up the decades-old debate about what grief really is what it definitely isn't. If you don't read past this paragraph, make sure you read the article,The Myth of the Stages of Dying, Death and Grief which will cause you to re-evaluate everything you've ever heard about the stage theories that have been applied to grief.

For nearly 40 years our society has used and misused the alleged stages of dying first popularized by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in her 1969 book, On Death and Dying. On the positive side, the book exposed the heartless treatment of terminally-ill patients prevalent at the time, and upgraded the care and treatment of dying people. On the negative side, it postulated the now-infamous stages: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance (known by the acronym DABDA).

The stages allegedly represented what a dying person might experience, even though Kübler-Ross said that not every dying person would experience all of the stages and not necessarily in order - which begs the question of whether or not they could be called stages in the first place.
