After CSE Films: Supporting children and families without traumatic imagery Practitioner resource and guide
This guide is a free and accessible collection of ideas and advice for practitioners working in child sexual exploitation (CSE) and abuse.
In November 2018, national organisations, local authorities, charities and police forces began to withdraw CSE films from practice. Many practitioners reported that they had never practiced without the films and didn’t know how else to support children subjected to sexual violence without them.
In the months following the withdrawal of films, many practitioners wrote to VictimFocus to ask for advice and guidance about alternatives to CSE films.
This guide for practitioners therefore provides valid alternatives to the use of CSE films in practice; both in one-to-one work and in school work with large groups of children.
