General guidance

There are likely to be different ways of arriving at solutions for the problems of suicide and trespass. Some end-users may prefer an in depth investigation to fully understand the problem and then solve in a specifically tailored way. Others may start from a more solution oriented perspective and prefer to consult a list of measures (best practice) for ideas for potential interventions. Both these approaches have value and are likely to depend on the end-user’s level of experience, practical needs, or individual preferences. We consider that they are complementary and bidirectional, therefore the Toolbox tries to build a bridge between them.
RESTRAIL Practical guide
However, in the RESTRAIL   approach we consider that problem solving should start with a structured analysis and understanding of the problematic situation. This consists of a process which integrates several steps, before any measure is actually implemented and evaluated. This multistep approach is referred to as the general guidance and answers the following questions:

  • What is the problem to be solved?
  • How to select the best measures that solve the problem?
  • What should be taken into account when planning the implementation?
  • How can the effects of the implemented measures be estimated?

The systematic process included in the general guidance is also described in the RESTRAIL   Practical guide. For more details, you may want to have a look at this scientific paper.
