The interventionists will be trained separately in their assigned intervention.

The study staff will receive extensive training (and re-training) in delivering FamLit intervention/attention-only before implementing the study and communicate with the PI on a weekly basis regarding any issues encountered during the intervention sessions.
A good working knowledge of the following software is mandatory: Word, Excel, Microsoft Outlook, and REDCap is mandatory. A reliable vehicle is required. These persons must be able to work well and collaborate with others who hold a wide variety positions in various departments at the University of Kentucky.

The persons will communicate with the principal investigator and project coordinator regarding any issues encountered during intervention delivery (and other assigned study activities, if needed).
