Triple P – Positive Parenting Program

The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is a “light touch” intervention providing brief onetime assistance to parents who are generally coping well but have one or two concerns with their child’s behavior or development following a natural disaster, more specifically the Fort McMurray wildfire.

During this 1.5 – 2 hour seminar you will hear about common social and emotional reactions of children following a natural disaster, the natural course of children’s responses, why some children are affected more than others, common parent traps, managing children’s emotions following the disaster, how to answer children’s questions, and what are my next steps. Take-home tip sheets are available for all those who attend.

There is no fee for the Triple P seminar. Parents are welcome to drop into any session. This Triple P seminar is one of the most effective evidence-based parenting programs in the world, backed up by more than 30 years of ongoing research. Triple P gives parents simple tips to help manage the big and small problems of family life.

If you feel this seminar may help you put into perspective what you and your family have experienced and continue to recover from, please drop by one of our seminar locations listed below.
