Course Description:

“My child is out of control and never listens to anything I say”

“I’ve tried yelling, timeouts, that counting thing, and nothing works with my child”

“I’m so exhausted I don’t even know where to start with my child’s misbehavior”

How often do you hear complaints like this from a frustrated parent in your office? Stress from dealing with behavior problems related to ADHD, Autism spectrum, or ODD can aggravate depression, anxiety, impulse control disorders, marital discord, substance abuse, and a host of other psychological problems in parents. Clients wind up stuck in a cycle where ineffective parenting methods exacerbate behavior problems and the parent has no idea what to do.

Join clinical psychologist and parenting expert, Thomas Phelan, PhD, as he teaches you how to incorporate 1-2-3 Magic (2 million copies sold) with even your most difficult families. This evidence-based, easy-to-learn method transforms difficult behavior and revolutionizes your treatment plans.

Imagine the feeling of success when that frustrated parent returns and tells you that what used to be an hour-long argument with their child is now a problem solved within 30 seconds! Or that exhausted parent is now more energized because bedtime is no longer a struggle.

The formula for this success is straightforward: The plan is simple, it’s easy to learn, and it works. Don’t let the frustration, anger, and stress continue any longer for your clients – Sign up to become a Certified 1-2-3 Magic Trainer® today!
