Triple P – Positive Parenting Program® (Triple P) is a parenting and family support system that serves families with children from birth through age 16. The system includes multiple interventions that increase in intensity across five levels of service. Within each level, there is a range of delivery methods to meet different family needs and be appropriate for multiple cultures. Home visiting is one of the methods of delivering services within some levels.
No Triple P level or intervention is exclusively delivered in the home with families with children from birth through age 5. This profile is based on (1) studies of programs that provided Triple P services in the home to families with children from birth through age 5, and (2) developer input on the Triple P interventions suitable for delivery in the home with families with children from birth through age 5. HomVEE refers to the approach to delivering Triple P in the home with families with children birth through age 5 as Triple P–Variants suitable for home visiting*.
Triple P was developed by researchers at The University of Queensland’s Parenting and Family Support Centre in Australia. Triple P is licensed under Triple P International Pty Ltd (TPI), based in Brisbane, Australia. TPI publishes Triple P resources, supports implementation, and provides training and accreditation. TPI subsidiary offices operate in many countries. In the United States, Triple P America’s implementation consultants support local and state government agencies and community-based organizations through all stages of implementation, including planning, training, delivery, evaluation, and sustainability.
