Triple P Provider Training Courses vary in length depending on the level. Typically, training courses are conducted over one to four days. The courses cover the theoretical foundations of behavioral family interventions both generally and specifically to Triple P. A comprehensive overview of the development and prevalence of behavioral and emotional problems in children and/or adolescents is also presented.
All Triple P Provider Training Courses are conducted by Triple P Trainers in compliance with the Quality Assurance Requirements specified by the University of Queensland. Training courses contain a maximum of 20 participants per course. And Triple P Trainers come to you – running training sessions at a location of your choice. Otherwise, you may send individual practitioners to open-enrollment training sessions, which are organized by Triple P.
A skills-based training approach is used to introduce participants to the range of consultation skills necessary for the effective delivery of the program. Various methods are used including instructive presentation, video demonstration, clinical problem solving, rehearsal of consultation skills, feedback and peer tutoring.
Practitioners are required to attend a minimum of 80% of each course to be eligible for accreditation. At the training sessions, each practitioner is provided with a comprehensive set of the relevant training resources such as Participant Notes, which outline the days' sessions and also help prepare practitioners for accreditation, and Practitioner or Facilitator Kits, which include the manuals needed to deliver Triple P to parents.
