The study will begin with a video call to familiarize each caregiver with the program technology and to establish personal goals for the training. Participants will then attend four, 90-minute, group-based online training sessions over two weeks. One month later, participants will attend a group reflection session to discuss their experiences applying the new skills and progress in meeting personal goals.
