IZZY KALMAN, MS, NATIONALLY CERTIFIED SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST

Israel (Izzy) C. Kalman, MS, Nationally Certified School Psychologist, is a nationally renowned instructor in anger control, bullying, and relationship problems. He has a knack for seeing simple things that escape most people, and for coming up with simple solutions to seemingly intractable problems. Nearly three decades ago, he developed a fun, yet powerful, one-session technique for teaching anger control to both children and adults. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology at CCNY in New York in 1974, and a Master’s of Science degree in clinical psychology at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia in 1978 before working as a school psychologist and psychotherapist in Israel and eventually in New York City. During the past 12 years, he has devoted himself full time to educating mental health professionals and educators. He is a Nationally Certified School Psychologist, and a member of the International School Psychology Association, the New York State Association of School Psychologists, the Richmond County Psychological Association, and the International Society for Research on Aggression.

Mr. Kalman is the author and creator of the website Bullies2Buddies.com , which offers free online manuals that have helped people solve their bullying-related problems, worldwide. He is also the author of a book for youth, Bullies to Buddies: How to Turn Your Enemies Into Friends; a manual for teachers and parents called A Revolutionary Guide to Reducing Aggression Between Children; an audio CD program, How to Stop Being Teased and Bullied Without Really Trying; a whole-school bullying-reduction program (actually, a victim-reduction program), Victim-Proof Your School; a DVD for workplace bullying called Turning Workplace Hostility into Harmony; and a DVD for marriage problems called From Soulmates to Cellmates. Mr. Kalman has appeared on national television as an expert on bullying, spoken at numerous professional conferences in the U.S. and abroad, and created a Staten Island Community TV series, Help They’re Driving Me Crazy.

Reviews
The best, yet new for me, approach to anger and bullying I have ever heard. Of all the Cross Country Education workshops this was by far the best one!
Marva Robinson, Psychologist
St. Louis, MO


I learned very much. Have many clients who are working on anger and the traditional approach is slow and has minimal results thus far. Looking forward to trying this technique. This is the fourth seminar I've attended put on by Cross Country and this was, by far, the best.
Sean Mayo, Counselor
St. Paul, MN


This seminar was well presented and extremely informative as well as fun and practical. I will use everything I have learned in my life as well as in my practice. Best seminar I ever attended. I loved the role-plays. Invaluable learning tool!
Christine Eddy, Counselor
Syracuse, NY


Woody Allen and Albert Ellis all in one...practical, real, useful, and fun!
Sharon Evans, Psychologist/Counselor
Tallahassee, FL


One of, if not the best, seminar I have attended. Absolutely great!
Soledad Dinis, Social Worker/Counselor
Worcester, MA


This was the best CEU seminar in my career. What a powerful and pertinent tool to treating anger and relationships.
