Triple P Teen Groups
The Teen Triple P Group is a 7 week parenting program aimed at parents or carers of teenagers aged 12-16 years who have or are at risk of developing behaviour problems. Teen Triple P teaches parents how to encourage emotional self-regulation and to help their teenager develop the social skills they need to get along with others and be successful at school and in the wider community. Teenagers who grow up with positive parenting are more likely to develop appropriate life skills, feel good about themselves, and are less likely to develop serious problem behaviours.
