Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme)

Not evaluated for Primary social and emotional

Intervention description

Triple P is an intervention for parents with a child aged between 0 and 12 years old who have concerns about their child’s behaviour.

Groups of up to 12 parents attend sessions over eight weeks delivered by a trained and supervised qualified practitioner. These sessions include five two-hour group meetings, as well as three individual telephone consultations lasting 15 to 30 minutes.

Parents learn 17 different strategies for improving their children’s competencies and discouraging unwanted child behaviour. Role play, homework exercises and discussions involving video-taped examples of effective parents strategies are used to help parents learn methods for getting more positive child behaviour and supporting their emotional needs.

Evidence Summary

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is funding an evaluation of Level 4 Group Triple P for 3-4 years old in 150 settings in the north of the country, with a preference for delivering in the North West. They will measure both language and behaviour outcomes. The EEF has partnered with the Department for Education and Leeds-based education charity SHINE to test projects that support parents to help improve their children’s learning and development before they start school.

The evaluation should be published in summer 2021.
