Effectiveness of The Triple P Positive Parenting Programme on Behavioral Problems in Children: A Meta-Analysis. By Graff et al.

“Triple P is based on social learning principles. This approach to the treatment and prevention of childhood disorders has the strongest empirical support of any intervention with children.” (Graaf et al., 2008; 716)

Many studies have shown that Triple P parenting can produce predictable decreases in child behaviour problems, which are maintained over time. Furthermore, the program has been successful for different family types (single-parents, step families). This study examined the effectiveness of Triple P interventions in the management of behavioural problems among children aged 2 to 12 using evidence from the pertinent studies.

It found that level 4 of Triple P has moderate to large effects on behaviour problems of children that last in follow up measurements of 6 to 12 months. These interventions improve the behaviour of the child, which was observed by the parents, and were sustained over time and improve in the long term. There has been widespread adoption and implementation of the program in many countries and in diverse cultural contexts.
