Triple P today


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.

Triple P has been tested on thousands of families over the past 30 years. More than 250 published papers, international trials and studies have shown it works across cultures, socio-economic groups and in many different family structures.

Triple P is now used in 25 countries including the USA, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Japan, Iran, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Netherlands, Germany, Curacao, Romania, Switzerland, Austria and Sweden. It has been translated into 17 languages and has helped more than four million children and their families.

Triple P has won numerous international awards, including the Australian Heads of Government National Violence Prevention Award, while its founder, Professor Sanders, has been a consultant to the World Health Organisation and the Council of Europe and to governments in countries including the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Japan and Iran.

A number of specialist Triple P programs have also been developed. These include Stepping Stones Triple P (for parents of children with a disability), Lifestyle Triple P (for parents of children who are overweight) Family Transitions Triple P (for parents going through divorce or separation) and Indigenous Triple P (for Indigenous Australian families).
