Each level of the program can be delivered in a range of ways, including private consultations, small groups, or large seminars Choose the level of intervention that is best for you or contact one of our Triple P Practitioners who can help guide you to selecting the level of intensity that meets your needs.

Standard Care: Individual Intensive Intervention (No cost to families)

Over 10 one-to-one sessions with a Triple P Practitioner, parents learn to set their own goals, work out what changes they would like to see in their child’s behavior, and learn strategies to promote positive behavior and deal with misbehavior. The intervention provides parents with comprehensive support in managing their child’s behavior across various settings (e.g. disobedience, fighting and aggression, temper tantrums). Parents or caregivers who benefit from this program have concerns about their child’s moderate to severe behavioral problems and are able to commit to up to 10 regular individual consultations, either in a clinic or in the family home.
