I am sure many of you are wondering why the title of this post is called “Triple P”, it’s very simple, I want to inform you about it. Triple P stands for Positive Parenting Program, and it is currently what I am doing for work. I go to client’s houses, which are parents that have a child age 1- 12 who is exhibiting negative behavior. The mother, father or both have tried other things, but have not been able to find a resolution, so they try Triple P.
I must tell you that the only reason I am writing about this program it’s because it truly works. At first I did not believe it. I started working at my organization because it was what was offered at the time, I mean, coming from a conventional counseling perspective parenting classes was not at the top of my desired area of work, if that makes any sense. However, I can attest to the fact that this program does work. I see it in my client’s faces, their interactions with their children, and most importantly in the child’s behavior. So I proudly call myself a Triple P Practitioner.
Unfortunately this program is not offered all over the State of Florida. It is limited, as a matter of fact it is limited all over the USA, and while it is used internationally it is not appreciated enough.
Allow me to give you a little information about this amazing program. It was created in Australia by a clinical psychologist, Matt Sanders. He researched for 30 years the interactions of children and parents, and came up with Triple P. This program is evidence based, which means that it has been proven to work. I urge all parents to look this up, and if they feel they have the time or interest they should seek out this service.
In the Palm Beach County area it is completely free, which I think is great for all of those parents or grandparents that want to be better but cannot afford to pay for services. I recently became certified in it, after a 3 day training and a 2 hour certification test. Very worthwhile, I plan to use it with my own children one day as well as with my nieces. Knowledge is power! 🙂
Have a blessed night.
