Ongoing research

No parenting program should remain static. To stay relevant and effective, it must respond to changes in society and science. So, Triple P research continues. Across the world, researchers test the impact of Triple P in different situations, and the results inform the program's development. The ideas for new research are sparked by the new demands and needs of parents, providers or program developers.

Program variants currently under trial include Triple P for grandparents, foster parents, parents of anxious children, parents of children with chronic health conditions and parents who have a mental illness.


The Parenting and Family Support Centre welcomes all new research proposals and maintains a database of published research at


In addition, the Triple P Research Network provides an online support community for active researchers and students collaborating on Triple P trials and studies around the world. To enquire about joining the Triple P Research Network, email
