The Triple P-Positive Parenting Program® is a multi-level, parenting and family support strategy. Triple P aims to prevent behavioural, emotional and developmental problems in children by enhancing the knowledge, skills and confidence of parents. The system was developed by Professor Matt Sanders and colleagues from the Parenting and Family Support Centre in the School of Psychology at The University of Queensland. Further details can be found at www.triplep.net.
Parents have differing needs and desires regarding the type, intensity and mode of assistance they may require. Triple P addresses these differing needs through its levels.
The program targets the developmental periods of infancy, toddlerhood, pre-school, primary school and adolescence.
