I've always preferred Worden's view. His tasks make sense and provide an umbrella for ALL of the experiences of grief including but not limited to denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

I think these make a lot of sense. But I thought Kubler-Ross's stages were first of all, intended for the person who's dying. And I also didn't think she believed they had to be experienced in a neat, linear order. Other people have imposed a different expectation on these stages: one that makes grieving predictable and acceptable. I particularly like his 4th stage, which I think is much more healing than mere "acceptance". Thanks for sharing these.
