Triple P in a nutshell

The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program ® is a parenting and family support system designed to help children to realise their potential. 

Triple P is designed to be with parents on every step of their journey, providing help and guidance to families when they need it. It aims to create supportive family environments, and to prevent, as well as treat, behavioural and emotional problems in children and teenagers.

What is Triple P?

Our implementation teams will help you determine your level of need, the best types of support, and how to make the most of existing local capacity.

Triple P fits the needs of every family, whether they are struggling with temper tantrums or sleeping patterns, parents in conflict with their child or with each other, or have children with additional needs, including those struggling with their mental health.


Triple P programmes draw on social learning, cognitive behavioural and developmental theory, in addition to research into risk factors associated with the development of social and behavioural problems in children. We equip parents with the skills and confidence they need to be able to manage any family issue.


While Triple P is almost universally successful in improving behavioural problems, more than half of Triple P’s 17 parenting strategies focus on developing positive relationships, attitudes and conduct.


Our programmes support parents of children from 0 to 16 years olds through a range of different courses:

  • Triple P is delivered to parents of children up to 12 years’ old
  • Teen Triple P is delivered to parents of 12 to 16 year old
