A powerful animated video created by NHS Lanarkshire for professionals working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA).
The moving eight-minute animation, Never too late to tell: understanding childhood sexual abuse, has been produced by NHS Lanarkshire’s gender-based violence (GBV) and clinical psychology services along with Glasgow-based video company Media Co-op.
This animation has content some viewers may find upsetting. If any of the themes in this film affect you, you can speak to a health professional, local Women’s Aid Group or Rape Crisis Centre
NHS Lanarkshire GBV Services - Never too late to tell: Understanding childhood sexual abuse.
This animation aims to help professionals understand the process of grooming and coercion used by perpetrators of childhood sexual abuse; to see it at work on children; to show how perpetrators manipulate other adults around a child; and to learn about the long–term effects on survivors and the implications for practice.
To help assist professionals we have developed training notes to accompany the animation. Further information on how to access the training pack is available on nhslanarkshire.org.uk/Services/GBV-Services/Pages/Never-too-late-to-tell.aspx
