ABOUT IZZY KALMAN
Israel “Izzy” Kalman - MS, NCSP is a luminary in the field of bullying, globally revered. Slowly-but-surely, he has been changing the way the world understands and deals with bullying, exposing the problems with the predominant legalistic approach while promoting a more psychologically valid one. His work has been featured in major media, including the New York Times and Good Morning America.
