I was a 17 year old student when I met Dr Elisabeth Kubler-Ross at a public lecture in Dublin. Her transformational work on grief, death and dying set me on a path exploring why we make the decisions we make and how we behave in times of change. The Kubler-Ross Change Model describes the emotional responses people go through when they are aware of impending change.
The stages are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Various versions have evolved over the years which define in more detail the inner dialogue of people and groups processing and understanding the ramifications of change.
