What is Group Triple P?
Group Triple P is a parenting intervention for parents of children up to 12 years old.
Triple P doesn’t tell people how to parent.
Rather, it gives parents simple and practical strategies they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs and needs.
The benefits can be dramatic and long-lasting.
Places are limited to 6 participants only, so do book early!
Who is it for?
- Parents or caregivers who have concerns about their child’s mild to moderate level of behavioural problems
- Parents who simply wish to prevent behaviour problems from developing
- Parents who want to learn a variety of parenting skills to apply to multiple contexts
- Parents need to be able to commit to the whole eight sessions
What does the program involve?
- The program involves four (2 hour) group sessions of up to 6 parents (18th March 10:30 - 14:30 then 25th March 10:30 - 14:30
- Parents actively participate in a range of exercises to learn about the causes of child behaviour problems, setting specific goals, and using strategies to promote child development, manage misbehaviour and plan for high-risk situations
- Three (15 to 30 minute) individual telephone consultations to assist parents with independent problem solving while they are practicing the skills at home
- The group then re-convenes to review progress, discuss maintenance and generalisation issues
What is covered in sessions with parents?
Session 1: Positive parenting. This session provides you with an introduction to what is positive parenting, why children behave as they do and how to set goals for change. You submit a completed assessment booklet at the beginning of this session.
Session 2: Helping children develop. During this session, we discuss how to develop good relationships with children, how to encourage good behaviour, and the four strategies for how you can teach their children new skills and behaviours.
Session 3: Managing misbehaviour. I offer additional strategies to assist you with managing misbehaviour during this session. You will also learn to develop parenting routines to promote compliance and manage non-compliance from their children. They have an opportunity to rehearse these routines during the session.
Session 4: Planning ahead. This session covers family survival tips, identifying high-risk situations that still cause concern, how to develop planning ahead routines to promote good child behaviour in high risk situations (e.g., shopping, learning how to take turns, fighting with siblings, getting ready for school). You also prepare for their telephone consultations during this session.
Session 5-7: Using positive parenting strategies 1-3. During the telephone consultation I provide feedback from initial assessments that you completed and then use the self-regulatory feedback model to help you review your implementation of planning ahead routines for your high-risk situations. From this, you set goals for further refinement of you routines, if needed.
Session 8: Program close. You return for a final group session to review progress, look at ways to maintain changes and plan for the future, and to close the program. If necessary, referral options are discussed.
Places are limited to 6 participants only so do book early!
