Group Triple P – group sessions for more serious problems

Is this your family?

Other parents don’t seem to have it as tough as you do. Your child constantly misbehaves. Your family life is full of anger and tears. There’s probably a lot of shouting and your child may even be aggressive—perhaps hitting you, the furniture or his brothers and sisters. In fact, every day, from breakfast to bedtime, it’s a battle.

Or is this you?

You want to create the happiest home life you can. You may have a few concerns about your child’s behaviour—perhaps there’s disobedience or you simply want to find out how to set up better routines for mealtimes or bedtimes. Whatever it is, you’re very keen to learn more about positive parenting and how you can apply it to your family.

What happens at Group Triple P?

  • opportunity to meet other parents in similar situations
  • tips and suggestions to suit the needs of your family
  • see how the ideas work in real life by watching scenes from the Every Parent’s Survival Guide DVD
  • workbook activities to give you tools and info you can use right away

Enhanced Triple P – For more serious family problems

Is this your family?

Home is an unhappy place. Maybe you and your partner are fighting all the time. Perhaps you can’t agree on the best way to be a parent. You might be really stressed, angry or even depressed. Life always seems to be on the edge of disaster.

If this sounds like you, Enhanced Triple P can help calm things down at home so you will feel a lot better – and your children will too. A Triple P practitioner will refer you to Enhanced Triple P. First, you will need to finish a Triple P Group or Standard course.

What is Enhanced Triple P?

This is like a mix-and- match selection of help options. First, you and your Triple P practitioner get together to work out what special support you need. You then choose from three mini-courses (modules) according to what’s right for you. You can do one, two or all three of these mini-courses. You’ll do these in private, with your Triple P practitioner—usually in your own home. It’s all about giving you individual attention.

Pathways Triple P – Keeping families together

Is this you?

You’ve already done, or are doing, Group Triple P or Standard Triple P. Things are very bad at home. You may be feeling angry a lot of the time. Perhaps you worry that you’re going to “lose it” and hit your child—or worse.

If this sounds like your home, then Pathways Triple P is for you. You will be referred to Pathways Triple P by your Triple P practitioner or by a health or child welfare professional. You do Pathways after you’ve completed a Triple P Group or Standard course.

How does Pathways work?

Your Triple P practitioner wants your family to stay together and to enjoy being a family. So they’ll give you special support and new skills to make sure you can manage your anger and manage your child’s behaviour.

You’ll have the opportunity to practice these news skills and start parenting the way you want to.
