Who is Triple P for?

 

Positive Parenting Programme® (Triple P) is an evidence-based parenting and family support programme designed to prevent behavioural, emotional and developmental problems in children by enhancing the knowledge, skills and confidence of parents.

 

Triple P is one of the most effective evidence-based* parenting programmes in the world. Triple P:

  • Offers parents preventive programmes of different intensities to meet your needs
  • Is effective in reducing child behavioural problems and improving parental self-efficacy and satisfaction

Endorsed by a respected research organisation, it is developed by Professor Matt Sanders through more than 30 years of clinical research trial. Evaluation research shows that it produces expected and consistent positive results; and results are attributed to the programme itself, rather than to other external factors or events. The programme is tailored for parents of primary and secondary school children.
