What is Group Triple P?
Group Triple P within the Psychology of Parenting Project (PoPP) is a broad-based
parenting programme delivered over eight weeks to parents and carers of children
aged 3 and 4 years old who are experiencing a variety of difficulties within their
parenting role. Parents may be finding it difficult to put in place appropriate
boundaries and positive parenting strategies to support their child’s social and
emotional development. The programme runs with up to 10 parents and starts with
four (2 hour) group sessions where parents actively participate in a range of
exercises. In weeks 5, 6 and 7 individual telephone or consultation sessions assist
parents with independent problem solving while they are practising the skills at
home. The programme then concludes with a final group session to review progress,
discuss maintenance issues and complete final evaluations. Parents will be selected
for participation using a range of tools or methods but all will undertake the Strengths
