What is 123 Magic and Emotion Coaching?

The 1-2-3 Magic and Emotion Coaching program aims to help parents and carers manage difficult child behaviour with a focus on strategies and techniques that promote positive behaviour; encouragement in developing the child’s ability to manage their emotional reactions; and relationship-building.

Our trained consultants at Butucarbin Aboriginal Corporation are dedicated in supporting Families and Parents through this community-based program.

Here at Butucarbin we offer;

  • 3 x 2 hour group sessions (maximum 25 participants) conducted weekly; or
  • 3 x 2 hour one-to-one sessions conducted weekly.

(The 123 Magic and Emotion Coaching program is delivered to Parents and Carers of Children aged 2-12.)

What will Parents/Carers learn?

  • How to discipline without arguing, yelling or smacking
  • How to sort behaviour
  • How to handle challenging and testing behaviours
  • Choosing strategies – the 3 choices model
  • Using emotion coaching to encourage good behaviour
  • Strategies for encouraging good behaviour

A single randomised controlled trial was undertaken, showing significant improvement in child behaviour post-implementation and significant improvements for carers and parents. The program appears to be beneficial as a prevention and early intervention program for preschoolers with externalising and/or internalising difficulties who were at high risk of maltreatment.
