Primary Care Stepping Stones Triple P – for everyday problems

Is this you?

Raising a child with an intellectual or physical disability can be tough! Perhaps you can't take your daughter shopping because she throws a tantrum every time. Or maybe you have a child who makes bedtime a nightmare. Or a son who lashes out at you or other kids. If your child has a particular behaviour or developmental problem that is making family life more difficult than it should be, then Primary Care Stepping Stones Triple P can help. Primary Care Stepping Stones Triple P gives guidance that is tailored to help you with specific issues.

What is Primary Care Stepping Stones Triple P?

This is a very brief and private way for parents to get Stepping Stones Triple P support. There are usually about 4-6 sessions (although sometimes more, sometimes less). It will just be you (and your partner, if you wish) and a Stepping Stones Triple P provider. There will be no other parents at these sessions. Primary Care Stepping Stones Triple P is for parents of children from 2-12 years.

Where do I get it?

Your provider will be someone who has been trained and accredited to offer Stepping Stones Triple P parenting advice and support.

You can find a Primary Care Stepping Stones provider near you using our map. Search your location and filter by "Primary Care Stepping Stones" course type.

What happens at the sessions?

You will talk with your provider about the problem you have. You could target anything from your child's meltdowns and lashing out to bedtime dramas. You will discuss what might be causing your child to behave this way. Then you'll work out the changes you would like to see in your child's behaviour.

You will be given suggestions to deal with the problem. You will also be given a booklet to take home. The booklet will remind you of the things you have discussed. You may also be shown a DVD that shows other parents dealing with similar problems with their children.

How long do the sessions take?

A session can last anywhere from 15 minutes to half an hour. Over four sessions that's a maximum of two hours. Just two hours that could help you turn your family life around.
