Title: Math Therapy: A Crash Course in Becoming a Math Therapist

Description: Did you know that pretty much anyone who thinks they're "not a math person" has math trauma they simply haven't worked through yet? Look, we’ve all had math teachers before…but how many of you have had a math therapist?! If you’re ready to dig deep, this crash course in math therapy is for you! This workshop will teach you the art of math therapy and empower you with the tools you need to add “math therapy” to your list of teachables. Through teaching math, we can empower our students to believe that they are capable of anything, and that everything is possible. That is the greatest gift we can give our students, and THAT is what being a math therapist is all about!
