​Triple P



Positive Parenting Initiative

Triple P - Positive Parenting Program is one of the world's most effective parenting programs. With more than 30 years of ongoing research, Triple P is one of the few evidence-based parenting programs, with more than 230 trials and studies around the world showing that it works - regardless of culture, country or individual situation. Triple P has helped more than 6 million children and their families in more than 20 countries around the world.

Why Triple P?

  • Triple P supports parents in raising confident, healthy children and teenagers. 
  • Triple P gives parents the practical skills they need to build strong family relationships, manage misbehavior and prevent problems from happening in the first place.
  • Triple P doesn't tell people how to parent, rather it gives them simple and practical strategies they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs and needs.
  • Triple P also recognizes that one size doesn't fit all. It's a system that offers ​increasing levels of support to meet parents' different needs.

 

A Parenting Program Designed Around You.


Destigmatizing parenting support

One of the driving principles of this public-health approach is to destigmatize the idea of parenting support. With parenting help so widely available, a parenting program becomes a natural thing to do. It's no longer something to be avoided or something that is considered the mark of a "bad parent". To support the destigmatisation of parenting programs, Triple P has a public communications campaign, called Stay Positive.

Different intensities

But there are other barriers that may prevent parents attending a parenting program. They may need more or less help than is being offered. They may not like doing group courses, or they may not want to be alone. So, Triple P is not a single "one-size-fits-all" program. It is a multi-level system with a suite of programs of increasing intensity. Programs can be chosen to meets the needs of hard-to-reach parents or families with complex or special needs, yet also be offered to parents who are having moderate difficulties with their children or those who may just need a few tips to make parenting easier. 
    

Different delivery modes

Triple P can also be delivered in many different settings (one-on-one, large group, small group) by a range of providers from many different disciplines. Providers are encouraged to tailor the way they deliver the program to suit the parents they work with, but they are trained to ensure that the fidelity of the program remains intact (and remains as effective as it can be).    
 

Different languages

Triple P is available in a range of different languages.     
 

Triple P allows parents to set their own goals to suit their personal situations and beliefs.
