Here is my best explanation:

'deter' is the definition.
('dissuade' can be a synonym of 'deter')

'daughter getting publicity in publication' is the wordplay.
'daughter' becomes 'd'.
'getting' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'publicity' becomes 'ad' (advert).
'in' is an insertion indicator.
'publication' becomes 'issue' ('issue' can be a synonym of 'publication'**).
'ad' inserted inside 'issue' is 'issuade'.
