Oscillation can be achieved through a process of expressing grief by means of revisiting and retelling of the the story of the loss, holding conversations with the image of the loved one and to providing opportunity to structure future goals and restore contact with a new world (Neimeyer & Currier, 2009, pg. 355). It has been shown to produce substantial change (Shear, Frank, Houch, & Reynolds, 2005 as cited in Neimeyer & Currier, 2009). Some benefits to denial are acknowledged, provided it is not in the extreme or long term. In support of oscillation, evidence shows that
Using elements of exposure therapy, Narrative Reconstruction (NR) aims to “create a cohesive and chronological narrative of the trauma while simultaneously addressing the personal significance of the trauma and integrating it in the patient’s autobiographical memories” (Peri and Gofman, 2014). The patients are often encouraged to recall and write about the trauma in an organized manner to identify the thoughts they relate to the event (Vitelli, 2014 pg. 203) and confront the negativity by consolidating every detail of the trauma to fully comprehend the situation.

by asking the authors if it is helpful to distinguish between mourning as a sociological concept and grieving as a psychological concept. Paul T. Clements, one of the authors, replied and explained mourning as a social procedure, yet it is so naturally interlaced with grieving that to try and separate the two is not a simple undertaking, nor is it useful for researchers or clinicians.

Also, Lutz made the first kind of doublespeak similar to logos by explaining that “the euphemism functions here not just to protect the feelings of another person, but to communication also your concern for that person’s feelings during a period of mourning” (Lutz 348). So, logos look similar to this definition, which is the what author wants the reader to feel and get involved in the article.

According to Lutz “Doublespeak is not the product of carelessness of sloppy thinking, Indeed, most doublespeak is the product of clear thinking and is carefully designed and constructed to appear to communicate when in fact it does not” (Lutz 352).
