Bullies to Buddies
School Program

As the principal of a fifth and sixth school for the last 16 years, I can attest to the effectiveness of the skills and strategies taught through the Bullies to Buddies program... After I attended a seminar taught by Izzy Kalman, I implemented his program and began to see positive results with my students. I then quit looking for any other program.  Bullies 2 Buddies is the solution I was searching for."

-Susan Kavich, Principal, Three Rivers School, Channahon, IL

How Bullies to Buddies Achieves These Results

Bullies to Buddies teaches how to understand the Golden Rule as a scientific, psychological formula and how to apply it in real life. It provides materials and training to students, school staff, mental health professionals, and parents. Because the lessons are simple yet counterintuitive and taught largely via entertaining role-plays, they enable people to quickly understand their mistakes and how to rectify them. Rather than teaching students that they need to rely on others to protect them from each other, Bullies to Buddies teaches them how to solve their social problems on their own.

What students learn:

  • The “optical illusion” that causes bullying

  • How to use the Golden Rule to stop being bullied without anyone’s help, including dealing with:

    • Verbal attacks

    • Rumors

    • Physical aggression and threats

    • Social exclusion

    • Cyberbullying

As a result, kids grow in happiness, resilience, independence, and emotional maturity. These techniques will unleash their sense of humor and make them more popular with their peers. And they will get along better with their parents, teachers, and siblings.

What the staff learns:

  • To understand the dynamics of bullying

  • How the typical adult interventions in student’s bullying incidents unwittingly result in an escalation

  • How to apply “magic responses” to students’ bullying complaints that:

    • Quickly de-escalate hostilities

    • Allow teachers to spend more time on academics

    • Enable students to develop resilience and emotional maturity

What parents learn:

  • The dynamics of bullying and how to help their kids deal with it on their own

  • How to help their own kids at home get along better with each other

  • How to get more respect and cooperation from their children

Parents become happier as their children’s social problems disappear and their home lives improve. Their appreciation for the school grows.

We offer a few low-cost options for school training (prices do not include expenses such as travel, lodging, etc.) To make the training affordable for schools, as well as to make sure they have the materials needed for continued implementation and success, the prices will cover materials, and the training (with the exception of the Certified Bullies to Buddies Training and administrator consultations) will be provided at no extra cost.
