Results that impress

Backed by science

Professor Matt Sanders:

"I continue to meet parents who just want practical and simple solutions that work."

More than 30 years ago, Professor Matt Sanders and his colleagues from the Parenting and Family Support Centre at The University of Queensland began to develop a parenting program. They wanted to help parents feel more confident about raising their kids. But they wanted to give them strategies that could be proven to work. After decades of research they finally gave their parenting program a name. Today, the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program® is used in 25 countries. And researchers at the University of Queensland, and around the world, continue to test Triple P, adding to the evidence base that sets Triple P apart. In fact, the United Nations says Triple P has more evidence behind it than any other parenting program in the world.
