SHIFT Training Special Agent Wins Free Camstasia Studio License!

Special Agent/Forensic Examiner Matt Sauer (pictured left) for Iowa’s Division of Criminal Investigation and the Iowa ICAC, was the lucky winner of a Camstasia Studio license by TechSmith on March 10, 2011 at the SHIFT Regional Training at the FAA Enrichment in Ankeny, Iowa.

The Camstasia Studio software allows you to record anything on your PC screen along with webcam and audio.  The product is used by educational and goverment organizations, including the NYPD, the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice, the US Postal Service, and the FBI.

The Iowa Regional SHIFT Training, team taught by Special Agent Scotty Hughes, Commander of the Wyoming ICAC, and Dr. Lawrence Thompson, Jr., Director of Therapy and Psychological Services for The Children’s Assessment Center in Houston, TX,  offered professionals who are exposed to child sexual abuse and torture images and who may interact often with child sex offenders (e.g., law enforcement officers, forensic analysts, prosecutors, etc.), the opportunity to learn about the causes and symptoms of the negative effects that may occur as a result of their duties and ways to mitigate them.

Mental health professionals learned about the challenges faced by professionals exposed to child pornography and other operations involving child sex offenders.
