Abstract:

"In this groundbreaking new work, David Kessler-an expert on grief and the coauthor with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross of the iconic On Grief and Grieving-journeys beyond the classic five stages to discover a sixth stage: meaning"--

In 1969, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross identified five stages of dying in her book On Death and Dying. Now Kessler introduces a critical sixth stage: finding meaning that can transform grief into a more peaceful and hopeful experience. Though his journey with grief began as a child, his life was upended by the sudden death of his twenty-one-year-old son. Here he shares the insights, collective wisdom, and powerful tools he has learned over the decades. -- Provided by publisher.
