Overview

Our team of pediatric psychologists and independently licensed counselors and social workers are certified to deliver the international, award-winning Triple P - Positive Parenting Program® curriculum. The program offers proven, research-based strategies to help you learn how to deal with everyday challenges - from toddler temper tantrums to teenage rebellion.

The parenting program proven to work.

Triple P emphasizes positive parenting techniques rather than punitive measures that typically escalate bad behavior. Through the program, you'll learn how to teach your children important life skills, including:

  • Being respectful
  • Becoming independent problem-solvers
  • Communicating needs
  • Getting along with others
  • Managing feelings

How Triple P can help.

In one-on-one sessions, you'll meet regularly with our Triple P staff to address your concerns about problem behaviors. The length of treatment is determined by the number and severity of behavioral difficulties.

We offer the following Triple P programs:

  • Standard: For parents of children up to age 12
  • Teen: For parents of teens ages 13-18
  • Stepping Stones: For parents of children with autism, communication difficulties and other developmental concerns
  • Primary Care: For parents who are visiting their pediatricians for guidance on disruptive behaviors

In addition to individual counseling sessions, you'll also have access to videos, tip sheets and workbooks in English and Spanish that explain Triple P's positive-parenting principles.
