Dissuasion research

The purpose of this pracademic literature review is to help the rail industry investigate the social psychology of ‘dissuasion’ in more detail to consider whether there might be additional ways, and alternative ways, to dissuade people from taking their own lives on the railways, and within society in general, rather than displacing it elsewhere. In the process, it sets out to examine dissuasion from three main perspectives: an academic perspective, business perspective, and creative perspective. This analysis is then followed by a series of recommendations which invite the rail industry to perceive suicide prevention in a more holistic way – by drawing upon ‘pockets’ of dissuasive knowledge and expertise from a plethora of industry and outside industry sources – to help the rail industry discover new ways to reduce suicides, both now and in the future.
