The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program® is a parenting and family support system designed to prevent – as well as treat – behavioral and emotional problems in children and teenagers. It aims to prevent problems in the family, school and community before they arise and to create family environments that encourage children to realize their potential.
This is one of the most effective evidence-based parenting programs in the world. Triple P gives parents simple and practical strategies to help them confidently manage their children’s behavior, prevent developing problems and build strong, healthy relationships.
There are two methods to implement the program: group and individual. The selection of the method to be utilized will be decided by the recommendation of the facilitators, according to the specific needs of each family.
The group method is directed to parents (guardians/tutors) of children up to 12 years of age. There’s a total of 8 weekly sessions. The first 4 sessions are two hours long. During these sessions parents actively participate in a range of exercises to learn about the causes of child behavior problems, setting specific goals, and using strategies to promote child development, manage misbehavior and plan for high-risk situations. Then there are three (15 to 30 minute) individual telephone consultations with the program facilitators to assist parents with independent problem solving while they are practicing the skills at home. The group then re-convenes for the last session to review progress, discuss maintenance and generalization issues and complete final assessments.
The individual method provides parents individual support and intervention. Over ten one-to-one sessions parents identify the causes of child behavior problems and to set their own goals for change. They learn a range of parenting strategies to promote and develop positive behavior for their child.
