Triple P Programme

Triple P Programme

The programme offers ideas to help deal with the big and small parenting challenges that are part of family life. Triple P does not tell you how to be a parent but offers a range of strategies for you to choose the ones that fit your family.

Triple P Positive Parenting programmes help you:

  • build a positive relationship between you and your child
  • raise happy, confident children and teenagers
  • manage behaviour in a positive way
  • set family rules and routines that everyone follows
  • get along better with your children or teenagers
  • balance work and family commitments

We aim to help parents and carers of children and teenagers up to 18 years. We also deliver a programme for parents and carers of children with special needs.

Triple P discussion groups

A discussion group is a short, small group session run by a trained Triple P practitioner.

Each session lasts about 2 hours and brings together a maximum of 10 to 12 parents who maybe experiencing similar parenting issues. In a session, your practitioner will give you tips and suggestions for dealing with your child’s behaviour.

You’ll see short video clips showing other parents successfully dealing with the same issue and you’ll be encouraged to share your thoughts with the other parents in the group, if you wish to. You’ll also be given a workbook with simple exercises and information to help you try your new strategies at home.
