    Group/Group Teen Triple P

    You’ll learn about:

    • Effective parenting strategies
    • How to promote your child’s development
    • How to manage common child behaviour problems
    • Principles to help you deal with almost any situation that might arise.

    The great thing about doing a Triple P Group Course is that the groups are small (typically 10-12 people) and you’ll feel immediately at home with a group or parents who all want the same thing – to do the best for their kids and have an enjoyable family life! Groups are run by accredited Triple P practitioners.

    There are four two-hour group sessions (once a week), followed by three 15-30 min telephone calls (once per week), addressing your individual progress and then a final group session. Group Teen programmes are also available for parents of Teenagers.

    Stepping Stones Triple P

    For families who have a child with a disability. You’ll learn about:

    • How to manage behaviour problems and development issues common amongst children with disabilities
    • How to take care of yourself as a parent by improving your personal coping skills and reducing parenting stress
    • How to use assertive discipline
    • How to develop a close relationship with your child
    • How to teach your child new skills and behaviours.

    Group Stepping Stones

    Group Stepping Stones is great if you are having significant problems with your child’s behaviour or if you would simply like to learn parenting skills to help promote your child’s development and potential. You’ll meet with a small group of parents who also have a child with a disability.

    There’ll be just six sessions of around 2.5 hours each. It will take a couple of months to complete. During the sessions you’ll watch DVD excerpts of the parenting strategies being used in real family situations and you’ll have a group workbook to take home. Your practitioner will also call you at home (three times for between 15 and 30 minutes) to answer questions, provide support and help you with any problems.


    You may prefer to come along to Triple P seminars. This is a great way to cover key areas we know many parents want information and help with, including:

    • Understanding general parenting issues, why children tend to behave in certain ways under certain influences, and what they best respond to.
    • Dealing decisively and effectively with behaviours such as aggression, non-cooperation and disobedience.
    • Recognising and managing situations that might be less obvious such as sadness, anxiety, difficulty with separation and problems mixing with other children.

    In around 90 minutes each, this series of three seminars will leave you feeling more confident and competent and ready to deal with common child behavioural and emotional issues. Teen seminars are also available for parents of teenagers.
