Parentshop – 1-2-3 Magic® & Emotion Coaching

A full day workshop for practitioners working with children and families to understand best practice for managing challenging behaviours

Parentshop presents 1-2-3 Magic® & Emotion Coaching

1-2-3 Magic® & Emotion Coaching is based on two underlying perspectives on parenting: first, that children can be taught to respond more flexibly when they are frustrated or upset and second, that parents and carers can be taught easy-to-use skills they can use at particular parenting moments. The professional training includes role-play, group discussion, worksheets and videos.

To become a certified parent educator, you’ll be provided with additional resources needed in order to present to parents. This ensures that our product is only being taught at the highest quality. There are several benefits in becoming certified: Certification is renewed each year at $69 for your first year and $49 thereafter. To remain certified, parent educators are required to complete a refresher every five years. Certification for the year is included in the refresher price.

Lesson Framework:

  • An overview of discipline approaches in contemporary Australia
  • Coverage of contemporary thinking in child development, particularly the differences between adult and children’s cognitive abilities
  • Sort behaviours: what’s involved and the implications for how parents will respond
  • Common mistakes in addressing misbehaviour, particularly the problem with too much talk and too much emotion
  • Choosing your strategy – the 3 choices: ignore it, Emotion Coach or use 1-2-3 Magic®
  • Processes of pattern-establishment and change: how negative reinforcement works, the characteristics of patterns, how to interrupt patterns and extinction bursts
  • Response flexibility in parents and carers: knowing how to avoid getting ‘hooked’ by children’s negative emotions
  • Using 1-2-3 Magic®: what it’s used for, what it’s not used for, how it’s done properly, how to implement it at home, how to avoid the two biggest mistakes of parenting
