Teens and Technology and the Effects of Self-Generated Content and Sextortion In an age where technology is in the hands of youth of all ages, the dangers of abuse and victimization can affect any child, from any background. These dangers, ranging from cyberbullying to self-victimization (sexting) to sexual exploitation (sextortion) and sexual abuse can be difficult to address. This session will focus on our perceptions versus reality for youth’s use of technology and the dangers of sharing of Self-Generated Content (sexting). This behavior can lead to Sextortion scams where offenders obtain explicit content and then pressure the victim to send money or send additional explicit content. Financial sextortion has become a significant danger for our youth, especially boys, and is often perpetrated by organized crime groups in Nigeria or the Ivory Coast. These threats can cause shame, fear and confusion and have led some victims to suicidal behaviors. This presentation will identify tactics used to target victims and will include information on awareness and preventive messaging to help provide protective factors and assistance for victims.
At the end of this training, attendees will be able to:
1. Describe how youth use technology;
2. Explain teen’s risks versus reward perspective;
3. Define Self-Generated Content and Sextortion;
4. Identify Sextortion offender tactics;
5. Explain the impact on victims;
6. Identify effective messaging and resources.

Minimizing the Impact of LE Actions on Victims
Law enforcement officers are sometimes placed in difficult situations and some of these situations may cause trauma to victims and others, even though they did nothing wrong. This presentation will identify causes and solutions to how law enforcement and others in authority, such as members of the Multi-Disciplinary Team can reduce this trauma. Discussion will include understanding the effects of law enforcement actions, stress induced implicit bias and trauma informed care. Attendees will also be provided additional resources for review and sharing with colleagues.
At the end of this training, attendees will be able to:
1. Explain implications of an investigation and arrest process;
2. Describe law enforcement culture and perceptions;
3. Define trauma informed response;
4. Identify effective policies and procedures, and resources.

2:30 P.M. - 4:00 P.M.
ICAC and MDT Collaboration and Resources
Although the ICAC Task Force Program has been in existence for more than 20 years, and the MDT/CAC system even longer, there are those within each discipline that have no idea about the work or capabilities the other possess. There also can be fear toward allowing another (unknown) discipline to be involved with, gain knowledge of, or participate alongside with an investigation. This workshop will discuss the resources used by ICAC Task Force Investigators, the Child Abuse Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) members, and Child Advocacy Centers (CAC), and the importance of cross discipline collaboration and resource sharing. This session will include tips toward positive collaboration and cooperation.
At the end of this training, attendees will be able to:
1. Define the mission of ICAC Task Forces, MDTs and CACs;
2. Identify ICAC, MDT and CAC investigative expertise;
3. Identify ICAC, MDT and CAC victim resources;
4. Describe ICAC, MDT and CAC resources to benefit each discipline.

This training is free to attendees but registration is required.
