The same cannot be said about experiencing the death of a loved one. Even after controlling for initial depression levels, bereaved adults with a ruminative style were more likely to evidence higher levels of depression when assessed six months later (Nolen-Hoeksema, Parker, & Larson, 1994). As mentioned in the previous chapter, rumination at least has the appearance of problem solving, but with the misplaced focus of attempting to minimize a “problem”— for example, the clean pain of uncomplicated bereavement—that is not there to be solved.
Similar contributions of rumination to depression have also been documented further through two programs of experimental research.

Maltsberger, 2003), suicidality as a verbal action, or behavior that is only possible as a consequence of framing events relationally (Hayes, 1992), appears to be uniquely human and to be the culmination of the languaging processes that move dysphoria along the pathway to clinical depression. In particular, because even those who are suicidal have never experienced their own death, the behavior of killing oneself cannot possibly have been shaped by contact with the direct consequences of doing so.
