Triple P-Positive Parenting Program is a multi-level, parenting and family support strategy. Triple P aims to prevent behavioural, emotional and developmental problems in children by enhancing the knowledge, skills and confidence of parents. The system was developed by Professor Matt Sanders and colleagues from the Parenting and Family Support Centre in the school of Psychology at The University of Queensland. (www1.triplep.net)

Triple P has been developed through more than 25 years of clinical research trials. The program is based on contemporary knowledge, has been well tested in international research and has been found useful by many parents.

Communities Caring for Children is offering Level 4 Triple P to the Surrey community. Forty Practitioners at 10 community agencies have been trained to deliver this package. To be eligible families must have a least one child between the ages of 3-6.

Level 4 Group Triple P

Triple P is a 7 session program, ideally conduced in groups of 10-12 parents. It employs an active skills training process to help parents acquire new knowledge and skills. The program consists of seven 2.5-hour group sessions which provide opportunities for parents to learn through observation, discussion, practice and feedback. Video segments are used to demonstrate positive parenting skills. These skills are then practiced in an emotionally supportive context. Between sessions, parents complete homework tasks to consolidate their learning from the group sessions. Although delivery of the program in a group setting may mean parents receive less individual attention, there are several benefits of group participation for parents. These benefits include support, friendship and constructive feedback from other parents as well as opportunities for parents to normalize their parenting experience through peer interactions.
