Speakers for the educational component are experts in topics related to the needs of youth. The coordinators also work within their counties to direct a Lead Response Team (LRT) to assist schools when needed following a traumatic loss event, or as in the case of several counties, support the director of an existing team. Post Traumatic Stress Management (PTSM), Psychological First Aid (PFA), Classroom, Culture and Community Based Intervention (CBI) and Traumatic Incident Intervention (TII) trainings are provided for members of these teams.
