The BeSeCu, an instrument to measure survivor's descriptions of an emergency or disaster they have experienced including a retrospective assessment of their cognitive, emotional and behaviour responses, was designed on the basis of focus groups and interviews with survivors of European emergencies and disasters. The analysis of focus group results was used in order to design and pre-test a pilot version of the BeSeCu in an international group of scenario participants and survivors of emergencies and disasters.
