As I recall normal bereavement involves sadness due to the LOSS of a person or animal (anything beloved) and usually lasts 2 months and then wanes down.

Adjustment is the response to something like losing a job, a divorce and the response would be depression, stress and anxiety.

Those are the ones I recall. Not sure about how long adjustment can be. But normal bereavement is usually 2 months
