“Triple P” stands for Positive Parenting Program. Triple P builds on your understanding of how your family works so you can use the things you already think, feel, say and do in new ways.
Triple P is almost always successful in improving child behavior problems and it’s based on the following 5 core principles:
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 participating in individual sessions to address more serious issues, Triple P offers a variety of levels for parents to choose from.
Dr. Matthew Sanders is the founder of the Triple P- Positive Parenting Program. He is a Professor of Clinical Psychology and the Director of the Family and Parenting Support Center at the University of Queensland.
Dr. Sanders, has spent 25 years growing the Triple P Program from a home-based individually administered training program for parents of disruptive pre-school children to a comprehensive multi-level parenting system that can meet the needs of families with children of all ages throughout all aspects of the community (home, schools and health clinics).
