The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is one of the world’s most effective parenting programs. It is one of the few based on evidence from ongoing scientific research, with more than 230 trials and studies around the world showing it works – regardless of a family’s culture, country or situation.
Triple P works by giving parents the skills to raise confident, healthy children and teenagers, and to build stronger family relationships. It also helps parents manage misbehavior and prevent problems occurring in the first place. But it doesn’t tell people how to parent. Rather, it gives them simple and practical strategies they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs and needs.
Triple P is also different because it is not “one-size-fits-all”. It’s a system that offers increasing levels of support to meet parents’ different needs. So parents can choose anything from one-off public seminars or self-help books to more detailed group courses or individual sessions.
Triple P is now used in more than 20 countries including the USA, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Sweden, Germany, Japan, Iran, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Netherlands, Curacao, Switzerland and Romania. It has been translated into 18 languages. It’s got more than 30 years of ongoing scientific research to back it up, with studies showing it helps families regardless of their culture, beliefs or personal situation. In fact, Triple Phas helped more than six million children and their families in more than 20 countries around the world.
ABSS has 25 school social workers trained in providing various levels of Triple P services for parents either individually, in small groups, or seminars. Please contact your child’s school social worker for more information today!
What the Experts Say About Triple P:
“Triple P is the only research-based parenting program that provides the flexibility to adapt to the needs of families and to a variety of service settings. It is highly appealing to me as a pediatrician because it provides a set of tools that allow me to address common concerns of parents efficiently and effectively.”

“Triple P is a great program. To my mind, it is the best in the world at addressing the needs of the whole community. The different components are carefully tailored to the needs of a range of parents. The content is based on best scientific practice, and is accessible and fun. Above all, it has been proven in numerous controlled trials to be highly effective.”

“The Every Parent video series should be in the hands of every parent. They will find it user friendly and it will make a difference in how their kids develop and grow. Professor Sanders is an internationally known researcher and therapist who has now produced the best video series available for parents. I recommend it highly.”
Professor Howard Markman, Professor of Psychology, University of Denver
“This video series is the best thing to happen to parent-child relationships. It is the first empirically validated state-of-the-art contribution to solving everyday family concerns and problems. It is fun to watch, makes sense, and helps families by using the medium of our age from scientific researchers who know and care about children.”
