The Triple P Program (Positive Parenting Program) is a parenting and family support system designed to prevent, as well as treat, behavioral, and emotional problems in children and teenagers. It aims to prevent problems in the family, school, and community before they arise and to create family environments that encourage children to realize their potential. Triple P draws on social learning, cognitive-behavioral, and developmental theory as well as research into risk factors associated with the development of social and behavioral problems in children. It aims to equip parents with the skills and confidence they need to be self-sufficient and to be able to manage family issues without ongoing support.
