Types of courses

While Triple P offers a wide range of both one-on-one and group based programs, in order to continue making Triple P available to the general public in our area, the MyTripleP coalition can offer only the following options:

Please note that this is a complete list all Triple P courses that can be made available but only a selection of them are being offered at a time.    For more information or to discuss options of courses being made available, please contact your local provider.

Level 2 - Select Seminars Series

Children 0–12, Teenagers, Children with Special Needs

Each Select Seminar Series of three topics provides parents with general information about promoting their child’s development and serves as an introduction to Triple P – the Positive Parenting Program.

Each seminar lasts approximately 90 minutes including a question period at the end. These brief introductions to the Triple P strategies provide great ideas to try at home.   Parents can register in one, two or all three seminars.

Level 2 - Brief Primary Care / Triple P Café's

Children 0-12, Teenagers, Children with Special Needs

Brief Primary Care uses Triple P Tip Sheets to introduce parents to strategies that may be helpful to them when addressing specific parenting issues. The tip sheets can be reviewed individually or in small groups called "Triple P Cafés".

A follow-up session is done by phone to inquire about progress made and to plan the next steps, if further support is desired.

Over 50 topics are available. Some parents decide to stay at level 2 to review multiple tip sheets while other parents decide to move to level 3 in order to learn more wide range of strategies.

Level 3 - Discussion Groups / Stepping Stones Booklet Series

Children 0-12, Teenagers, Children with Special Needs

Triple P Discussion Groups and Stepping Stone Booklet Series are two-hour sessions held with a small group of parents. Each group focuses on a specific predetermined topic.

In a relaxed setting, the provider gives tips and suggestions for dealing with a child's problem behavior. Short video clips are watched, showing other parents successfully dealing with the same issue. Exchange between participants is encouraged but is not mandatory.

Each participant receives a take-home workbook with simple exercises and information to help implement the new strategies at home.


Level 4 - Standard Groups

Children 0-12, Teenagers, Children with Special Needs

Standard Groups are made up of a small group of parents going through similar situations. They are great opportunities to share stories and offer mutual support.

The provider gives tips and suggestions to fit the needs of each participant. Videos help demonstrate how the ideas work in real life. A workbook given to each participant includes the tools and information you need to start positive parenting right away at home.

Triple P Standard Groups are eight weeks long. For weeks 1 to 4 and 8, parents attend two-hour long in-class sessions with two practitioners. For weeks 5, 6 and 7, parents participate in 15-minute phone sessions or one-on-one session with a practitioner to review how things are going in the home.

Level 5 - Family Transitions

Parents going through a separation or divorce benefit from learning about how it will affect their family dynamic and their parenting. This program is designed to help them manage their emotions, manage conflict and create balance between family, work and play.

The program consists of five weekly group sessions of two hours each. Following the Family Transitions program, it is best to participate in a level-4 Standard Group or Program.

Please note: This is not a mediation program. Courses are always offered with Group A and Group B running at the same time to allow for ex-partners to be in different sessions.
