Joint award winners changing families' lives

Two bi-lingual Triple P providers were honored for their work in implementation and community engagement at the recent Helping Families Change Conference in Banff, Canada.

Christine Renard (pictured above, left) is the Triple P Implementation Coordinator at the University Center for Integrated Health & Social Services [Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS)] in Montreal’s south central area/Centre-Sud-de-l’Île-de-Montréal.


Christine was chosen for her outstanding leadership and commitment to program fidelity, collaboration with service partners, and excellent work in community promotional activities including liaising with local media and producing a parent video.


Joint winner France Landry (shown at right) has a similar role to Christine. She is a social worker and Triple P Implementation Coordinator with the Health and Social Services Centre [Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux] at the Capitale-Nationale, in Québec.


France received the award in recognition of her work in delivering Triple P to a large number of families, promoting the program to the wider community through innovative means, and working extensively with local providers to create French translations of materials.

This research included a randomized controlled trial study among Chinese families in Shanghai.
