Parenthetical Style

This requires establishing "clear professional roles within a team is an essential element ... for maintaining professional integrity" (Dudgeon et al., 2014, p. 236).

This in turn opens up the possibility for individuals to reframe the ways they think and act in relation to mental health (Foucault, 1956/1984).

Narrative Style

Dudgeon et al. (2014) state that this requires establishing "clear professional roles within a team is an essential element ... for maintaining professional integrity" (p. 236).

Parenthetical Style

"Lesbian, gay and bisexual people still experience a considerable level of prejudice and discrimination" (Carroll & Holloway, 1998, p. 55).

Dreams are rather valuable psychic experiences (Freud, 1900/2010). 

Narrative Style

Carroll and Holloway (1998) point out that "lesbian, gay and bisexual people still experience a considerable level of prejudice and discrimination" (p. 55).

As Freud (1900/2010) clearly discuses, dreams are valuable psychic experiences.
