TripleP: What is Triple P?

What is Triple P?

Triple P aims to build positive behaviors in children, confidence in parents' abilities, and community support for raising children.

Triple P is really a whole “system” of support for parents because it is designed to offer as much or as little help as parents may want. From reading a Tip Sheet on a particular problem, to attending a Seminar or Group Course, or taking individual sessions to address more serious issues, Triple P offers a program tailored for each parent.

While Triple P is almost always successful in improving child behavior problems, more than half the program's emphasis is on developing positive attitudes, skills and behavior. This helps prevents problems from arising, and promotes family relationships that encourage children to reach their full potential.

Triple P was developed and scientifically proven over 25 years by Dr. Matt Sanders, Professor of Clinical Psychology, and his colleagues at the University of Queensland's Parenting and Family Support Centre.  Dr. Sanders has gained international recognition for his research on the role of parenting in the prevention and treatment of behavior problems in children. Triple P is now being used in many countries around the world. Triple P continues to be constantly researched as it is introduced in new countries.

The Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) is an approach that promotes good communication and strong relationships between parents and children.

At a Triple P session you’ll discover and talk over new ways to build the relationship between you and your child, ways to achieve good behavior and how to handle misbehavior, especially when faced with difficult situations.

Triple P is a well-researched parenting package which creates excellent outcomes for parents and children and it has a successful record with families from minority ethnic groups.
