Abstract
This classic book introduced the author's seminal "stages of dying" or "stages of grief" model which is still widely quoted. According to the model, there are five stages that a dying person goes through when they are told that they have a terminal illness. The five stages go in progression through denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. This model has been widely adopted by other authors and applied to many other situations where someone suffers a loss or change in social identity.
