comment What is the expression for the process of getting over the loss of a loved person?
I'm still confused, sorry. As Werner said: Are you referring to: 1. The process of grieving. 2. The result of grief (acceptance/coming to terms). 3. Both (the whole process)? Thanks.

It's not clear at all. It sounds very much like he's talking about the entire process, from start to finish -- from news to acceptance. Even when clarifying himself that's what he appears to be saying. ("It generally ends when your"accept" the loss.")

@Mari-LouA I think I understand you. You wrote "the person in mourning" but you meant "the bereaved person". (The two are very different.) Gotcha.

@Mari-LouA You wrote: "I believe the OP is referring to the period when the person in mourning" And then: "The person is no longer suffering from shock, i.e. they aren't mourning" ?

@Mari-LouA Mourning is very different from acceptance. You don't stay in mourning for the rest of your life after someone close to you dies.

Can you clarify what you mean by "elaborated"? It sounds like you're asking for the entire process -- including the part where the grief is explored and expanded.

@QPaysTaxes This is an utterly pointless discussion. If you want to ignore my point ("cherry pick" what I said), so be it. It's clear I take the OP to mean the entire process, not just the end.

@QPaysTaxes The OP says: "What is the expression that indicates the process ... during which the deep sorrow for the death of a friend or family member is 'elaborated'..." Perhaps they didn't mean 'elaborated', but you can't have acceptance without grief.

@QPaysTaxes Grieving is the path to acceptance.

@asmeurer You know what, you're absolutely right. Sorry, I was completely wrong about that. My bad.
