Triple P

Positive Parenting Program® (Triple P) is a scientifically researched family support strategy which enhances the knowledge, skills and confidence of parents, as well as reduce parenting-related stress. It equips parents with simple and practical strategies to help

  • manage your children’s behaviour

  • prevent behavioural and emotional problems from developing

  • build strong, healthy relationships within families

Developed by clinical psychologist Professor Matt Sanders and his colleagues at Australia’s University of Queensland, Triple P has been tested with thousands of families through more than four decades of ongoing research.

Triple P is not a “one-size-fits-all” course. It offers increasing levels of support to meet parents’ different needs. Montfort Care offers the Level 2 (Seminars and Webinars), Level 3 (One-to-one coaching) and Level 4 (Group Work).
