Although the ICAC Task Force Program has been in existence for more than twenty years, and the CAC system even longer, there are those within each discipline that have no idea about the work or capabilities the other possess. There can also be fear toward allowing another (unknown) discipline to be involved with, gain knowledge of, or participate alongside with an investigation. This workshop will demonstrate the resources used by ICAC Task Force investigators, Child Abuse Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) members and Child Advocacy Centers (CAC), and the importance of cross discipline collaboration and resource sharing. Resources such as ICAC ability to examine digital evidence and images and MDT’s ability to investigate child abuse and conduct forensic interviews will be discussed. This workshop will include tips toward positive collaboration and cooperation.
