One such consequence produced by the formation of temporal frames relating life and death is the avoidance of further suffering (for example, “life = suffering,” “death = no life,” “no life = no suffering,” “death = no suffering”). Accordingly, suicide in such a context may be regarded as the ultimate act of escape. It seems appropriate to mention here that there has been some disagreement among practitioners of ACT about the usefulness of regarding at least some instances of “experiential avoidance” as “experiential escape” (Wilson, 2006).

Individual as well as gender differences in coping styles exist (Nolen-Hoeksema, 1990), and those who are more apt to resort to a “ruminative style” have been shown to be more susceptible to experience depression in response to various life stressors (Nolen-Hoeksema, 2000; Nolen-Hoeksema, Larson, & Grayson, 1999). For example, among college students who survived an earthquake, those who displayed a ruminative style in dealing with dysphoric mood were more likely to be depressed seven weeks later than their nonruminating peers (Nolen-Hoeksema & Morrow, 1991).

In a follow-up study, depressed and nondepressed participants were induced to engage in either “analytical” or “experiential” self-focusing on their psychological experiences and bodily sensations (Rimes & Watkins, 2005). The analytical condition emphasized the evaluative component of rumination by asking participants to think about “the causes, meanings, and consequences of each symptom/sensation” (p. 1676), while the experiential induction instructed subjects to merely focus their attention on the experience of each symptom/sensation.
