The Stages of Grief (Education Printout)

The five stages of grief defined by Kübler-Ross in 1969 have helped countless people make sense of the feelings that they experienced after a painful loss. In this handout, each of the five stages (denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance) are explained.

Use this worksheet as an education piece and allow your clients to identify how they have personally experienced the stages. Remember, not everyone experiences each of the stages, and they don't necessarily occur in order, and a person can move back and forth between them. Try pairing this worksheet with the My Stages of Grief worksheet to increase client involvement.
