Description: Experiencing grief during COVID-19 is prevalent. There are five identified stages of grief including denial, bargaining, anger, depression, and acceptance. Psychoeducation about these stages provides a framework for understanding the grief experience. The purpose of this presentation is to provide a definition on the denial, bargaining, anger, depression, and acceptance stages of grief. A psychoeducational approach for assisting clients with grief using these stages is proposed.
