Finding Your Way Through Grief

By Carrie Vittitoe Dealing with grief isn't like following a souffle recipe; there are no detailed must-follow steps that proceed in a specific order. When Elisabeth Kubler-Ross proposed the Grief Cycle model in 1969, she attempted to explain the myriad emotions encompassed in grief, not make people feel that they aren’t grieving correctly if their experience doesn’t match the model.

It is influenced by many factors, including one’s personality, the type of relationship a person had with the deceased, and the type of death the deceased [...]
