Feel better by understanding the 6 stages of a crisis (1 minute read)

Previous posts have dealt with how you can handle tough life situations like this by changing your attitude, more specifically, your sense of coherence and its dimensions:

  • Understandable
  • Manageable
  • Meaningful

Understandable means having a belief that:

– Things happen in an orderly and predictable way. ‘

– We can understand events in our lives and reasonably predict what will happen in the future.

This post continues with the understandable consequences of a crisis on our well-being.

The 6 stages of a crisis

During a crisis, we find ourselves in different stages of the crisis curve. The crisis curve usually consists of the following stages. Individuals need different amount of time to get through each phase – hours – days – weeks – months – even years:

Stage 1: Shock & denial of what has happened and the related consequences.

Stage 2: Anger often aimed in several directions.

Stage 3: Dealing / trying to undo and alter the consequences of the crisis.

Stage 4: Despair and resignation when you realize the inevitable consequences.

Stage 5: Acceptance of the new reality after reviewing and reconciling the consequences of the crisis and the acute phases.

Stage 6: New orientation – life is no longer directly adversely affected by the obstacles of the crisis.
