Families will continue to have access to an international parenting program developed at The University of Queensland, after renewed investment in state government funding.
Triple P – Positive Parenting Program founder and UQ Parenting and Family Support Centre director Prof Matt Sanders, said the program gave Queensland parents a valuable opportunity to improve the wellbeing of their families as well as their children’s life chances.
Triple P has helped millions of families around the world over the past 30 years, including 85,000 Queensland families who have received free, evidence-based parenting support after the Queensland Government’s initial investment in 2015. It has received endorsement internationally from governments that have implemented the program, including the United States, Iran, Indonesia, the UK, Japan, Ireland, Chile, Denmark and The Netherlands.
With the continued funding, UQ commercial partner and Brisbane-based company, Triple P International, will provide co-ordination, training and resources at no cost to families.
Triple P includes an online program, topic-specific seminars, parent discussion groups, one-on-one consultations and small group-based and individual face-to-face programs.
