A Case Related To Death, Dying And Bereavement

1293 words - 5 pages


Death, dying and bereavement would bring different memories and emotion to bereaved person. There were different manifestations of grief (Strobe, Schut, & Strobe, 2007). In the grieving process, we would experience depression, anxiety and fear about death and dying. We also felt loneliness, shock and numbness during death and dying. In addition, there were also some common grief reactions to the bereaved person too. They lost their appetite, sleeping disturbance, being exhausted and many complaints about somatic and physically (Worden, 1991; Stroebe, Schut, & Stroebe, 2007). The grieving process may have its pathway (McKissock, D., McKissock, M., & Bereavement C.A.R.E. Centre., 1998). In this pathway, it seems to be divided into eight elements and bereaved would experience from the first day to the fifth year McKissock, D., McKissock, M., & Bereavement C.A.R.E. Centre., 1998).


The story was about a young man who was 26 years old.

Stage Model (Kubler-Ross, 2005)

In the Stage Model of Kubler-Ross, it was included five stages. It also traditionally recognized in its abbreviated form DABDA (Santrock, 2007)

The first stage is Denial. After the love one death, bereaved was suffering from loss. They could not accept the facts in conscious level or unconscious level, no matter what to do or how to do. This kind’s action we would say that defense mechanism was emerged. Most bereaved person would be fixed on this stage during their painful events. They thought that they felt fine and this could not be happening to him or her. In the early days, bereaved have a tendency to reject or denial about the loss and may take out from their social activities. This behavioral would be left following after death. Denial stage may last for a few moments, a few months which all depends on the bereaved person. It may last for longer than moments or months (Kubler-Ross, 1973&2005; Santrock, 2007).
The second stage is Anger. In this stage, the dying person or bereaved person were difficulty in settle down their emotions. It was very difficult to care them which was due to their misplaced feelings of irritable. Resentment and jealousy was become a symoblic their life. They might be angry to the world. They might be angry about the facts that he did before, even though they couldn’t do anything to stopped it (Kubler-Ross, 1973&2005; Santrock, 2007). They felt upset about the loss, they became angry to themselves or other person. But also the angry feelings would expressed towards to the deceased (Kubler-Ross, 1973&2005; Santrock, 2007).

The third stage is Bargaining. In this stage, people would negotiate between life an death. However, the hope for these oeple was focusing on how to pospone or delay the death. During facing death, they would keep asking or bargaining with the god that th eperson believes in. Some people would said that “Just le me live to see my...
