Introduction  | Overview  | Contents  | Purchase    

SE3R is a method that enables you to capture and to analyse rapidly and comprehensively the fine-grain SE3R Resource book and CDdetail in any form of written or spoken text. It is an invaluable information processing tool which enhances the practice of all text professionals: police officers, investigators in the public and private sectors, lawyers, legal staff and others working in criminal, civil, and tribunal systems, those who process claims and applications, counsellors and psychotherapists, researchers and academics. There are many more occupations that involve working professionally with text.  

The text professional must have a sound grasp and recall of the fine-grain detail contained within documents - such as statements – and in verbal exchanges – typically interviews – conducted face-to-face or on the telephone, or recorded electronically. It is essential to know what really was disclosed, what was disclosed in a vague or odd manner, or not disclosed at all!

SE3R has a unique format and techniques. These help you unconsciously to register and to store in memory much more detail than you are able to gather by close reading, intent listening, or conventional note taking. SE3R instantly reveals critical material and the whole range of oddity that can occur in text. You are immediately able to do something about it: identifying and prioritising areas for probing and further investigation; planning and preparing for a subsequent interview; keeping track of disclosures and behaviour in the interview.
