Frequently Asked Questions

Do both parents have to attend a Triple P course or session together?

It is great if both parents can attend although this is not essential. Triple P is also used very successfully by single parents. But families with both parents attending will experience many benefits at home working as a team to change their child's behaviour. You'll probably communicate better about parenting, argue and disagree less, and support each other more. Even if only one parent can attend, Triple P is still of great benefit.

Can Triple P help grandparents, foster parents and other caregivers?

The principles of Triple P apply to anyone who cares for children. Grandparents and other caregivers often attend Triple P programs.

Can I do more than one type of Triple P?

Yes. Parents can complete as many of the Triple P choices as they wish. For example, you may go to a one-time seminar and decide you would like to do a more intensive group program as a booster.

Can anyone run a Triple P program?

No. Providers running Triple P are required to have completed an approved training course and be an accredited provider. Always check the qualifications of the person running any parenting program.
