“Great workshop! Learned and re-learned some good stuff.” – Mac Webb, Psychologist, Boise, Idaho (8.28.12)

“Wonderful job breaking things down to their most basic, common sense level. Infusing humor and personal anecdotes into the seminar also made for a very entertaining, educational experience. I love how this premise empowers the ‘victim.’ Instills in them the truth that the only thing they control is themselves.” – Paula Nordstrom, Psychologist, Boise, Idaho (8.28.12) 

“Excellent seminar – I expected a ‘big canned plea for ‘anti-bullying.’ What I got was down to earth suggestions based on the wisdom most of us were raised with This was a day well spent!” – Kandis Parker, Counselor, Boise, Idaho (6.28.06)

“Awesome, easy to use material, great stuff. I would’ve enjoyed hearing some history of his (Izzy’s) work, etc. If other participants didn’t understand or agree, it’s because they didn’t listen to the premise of presentations. Great stuff!!” – Michael Stevens, Social Worker, Boise, Idaho (6.28.06)

“Refreshing! It’s wonderful to have insights into bullying that are firmly based in reality! Thank you!” – Juli Bardslety, Psychologist, Boise, Idaho (6.28.06)

“This is the best workshop I’ve been to in years! Thanks for giving me a new way to look at and explain anger. I will use it right away – both in my personal and professional life. I really loved the role-playing. It’s so tangible – I can take it back to work tomorrow to use and teach to teachers, principal as well as students.” – Trudy Kent, Counselor, Boise, Idaho (2.16.05)
“It’s not only that the answer is respect but the clear demonstration and explanation of how to express the respect in all relationships. Not surprisingly the effective behavior is the exact opposite of what we are doing and thinking these days. Respect can only be earned, not commanded or demanded.” – Janet Gillespie, Counselor, Boise, Idaho (2.16.05)

“These techniques would also be very helpful in a setting such as conflict resolution (mediation and/or negotiation). I also thought this would be helpful when working with victims of domestic violence. New research is showing that victims are more receptive to therapy and change when they are allowed to process this with a therapist those behaviors that they feel they did to provoke the violence. Typically we have been taught to correct them when they express feelings of guilt – however, they know on some deep level that they could have controlled the episode. In fact – often during the period of escalating tension, the victim will provoke the episode just to get it over with (which promotes identification with the abuser). If they can process this with a therapist, they are more likely to come out of the therapy experience with an improved self-esteem and a reduction in the rate of relapse.” – Julia Spencer-Franklin, Psychosocial Rehab. Specialist, Boise, Idaho (2.16.05)

“Great balance of concrete information and practical application, balanced with humor.” – Kristin Overton, Counselor, Boise, Idaho (2.16.05)

“I had a hard time getting into the material until you sang for us.” – Mike Van Dyk, Boys Director, Project Patch Youth Ranch, Boise, Idaho (2.16.05)

“This is a very practical and encouraging way of dealing with anger. I love the idea of correlating “nature life” and “civilization life”. I loved the seminar! Slow down. It’s too fast paced.” – Kimi Casad, Counselor, Boise, Idaho (2.16.05)

“This is an excellent resource for those who are in all helping professions. I am going to be able to put this into practice when dealing with my angry clients. Thank you!” – Shawn Jensen, Counselor, Boise, Idaho (2.16.05)
