Primary 3 Teen Triple P provides parents with a broad focused parenting support intervention on a one-to-one basis for parents of teenagers up to 16 years of age. After thorough family assessment parents set their own goals, learn ways to encourage positive behavior for teens, and teach their teens new skills such as problem solving, conflict resolution and self-regulation. Parents also learn ways to use appropriate consequences for misbehavior (e.g. breaking family rules, taking inappropriate risks, emotional outbursts).
Parents or caregivers who benefit from this program are those that have concerns about their teenager’s development and behavior. They may be concerned that their relationship with their teen is not positive, that their teen has not learned independence and self-regulation skills, or that they have not found an effective way to discourage inappropriate or risk-taking behavior. Parents are most likely to benefit if they can commit to completing the 4 weekly sessions.
