Brief Psychoeducational Parenting Program [1-2-3 Magic]: An Evaluation and 1-Year Follow-up

This study evaluated a brief psychoeducational group-based program delivered in community agencies and targeted at parents of 3- and 4-year-olds whose parents believed they were having trouble managing their children's behavior. The program was developed and piloted in a university hospital setting where facilitators were trained. It uses a commercial video, 1-2-3 Magic (Phelan, 1990). It aims at providing simple, clear strategies, such as timeout and rewards, to reduce the coercive and conflicted patterns of interaction between parent and child. It stresses the importance of eliminating parental nagging, yelling, hitting, and critical or hostile comments. It provides examples of positive and negative parenting behaviors and practical suggestions for overcoming different forms of child resistance.
