"The 1-2-3 Magic Program": Implementation Outcomes of an Australian Pilot Evaluation with School-Aged Children
Bailey, Erin L.; van der Zwan, Rick; Phelan, Thomas W.; Brooks, Anna
Child & Family Behavior Therapy, v34 n1 p53-69 2012
This study served as a pilot evaluation of the efficacy of the 1-2-3 Magic Program (Phelan, 2003) as a brief parenting intervention for families with a school-aged child. Nine Australian families assigned to either a wait-listed control group (n = 4) or to one that received immediate intervention (n = 5), participated in a randomized controlled trial. At follow-up assessment, only families who had received training reported significant improvement in child behavior and levels of confidence in parenting ability. As such, the current data provide preliminary support for the short-term efficacy of the 1-2-3 Magic Program as a brief intervention for families of children aged 6-12 years. (Contains 4 figures, 1 table, and 1 note.)
