Stakeholder participation is most effective when key choices concerning the risk have yet to be made. This chapter discusses requirements for successful stakeholder participation. It provides guidelines for specific types of stakeholder participation activities, and gives advice on how to choose a form of stakeholder participation. The general purpose of self‐help groups is to motivate stakeholders already aware of personal risky behavior to prevent or address the risk in their own lives. The chapter also gives additional guidelines for specific types of group interactions. Most of the activities described in the chapter can be adopted to allow stakeholders to participate in decision making. The chapter lists advantages and disadvantages of the various types of stakeholder participation. Finally, it shows which types of interaction are most effective for care, consensus, or crisis communication.
