  11. 11. Denial<br />conscious or unconscious<br />refusal to accept facts,<br />information, reality, etc., <br />relating to the situation concerned. <br />
  12. 12. Denial<br />It's a defense mechanism <br />perfectly natural<br />Some people can become locked in this stage when dealing with a traumatic change that can be ignored. <br />
  13. 13. Anger<br />can manifest in different ways. <br />can be angry with themselves<br />and/or with others<br />especially those close to them.<br />
  14. 14. Bargaining<br />Bargain with God<br />People facing less serious trauma can bargain or seek to negotiate a compromise. <br />For example "Can we still be friends?.." when facing a break-up. Bargaining rarely provides a sustainable solution, especially if it's a matter of life or death. <br />
  15. 15. Depression/sadness<br />It's natural to feel sadness and regret, fear, uncertainty, etc. <br />It shows that the person has at least begun to accept the reality<br />We can begin to deal with the issue<br />
  16. 16. Acceptance<br />this stage definitely varies according to the person's situation<br />although broadly it is an indication that there is some emotional detachment and objectivity<br />Usually the last stage<br />We can begin to move on<br />
