Distress and Interventions in Mathematics is a workshop series led by Amy Henderson (licensed clinical social worker) and Rachel Bachman (mathematics educator) where K-12 mathematics teachers come to understand what distress looks like in themselves and students, why distress matters when learning, and how interventions help navigate distress common in the learning environment. The workshop highlights practical tools to use in K-12 mathematics classrooms, and offer time to practice interventions personally and rehearse leading these interventions for others.
The series includes topics such as understanding distress, mindfulness, crisis intervention strategies, validation, attachment and attunement, and understanding negative and positive beliefs. Each topic includes theoretical justification, practical teaching strategies, and concrete tools for distress management.
The class will meet virtually beginning January 19. 1.0 USBE Credit Hours available upon successful completion of the course.
