Family Transitions
Triple P (Level 5)


What is Triple P?

The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program® is one of the world’s most effective parenting programs.

It is one of the few based on evidence from ongoing scientific research. There have been more than 200 evaluation papers, including 104 randomised controlled studies, showing that Triple P works for most families in a variety of cultures, countries and family situations.

Triple P works by giving parents the skills to raise confident, healthy children and teenagers, and to build stronger family relationships. It also helps parents manage misbehaviour and prevent problems occurring in the first place.

But it doesn’t tell people how to parent. Rather, it gives them simple and practical strategies they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs and needs.

Triple P is also different because it is not ‘one size-fits-all’. It’s a system that offers increasing levels of support to meet parents’ different needs. So parents can choose anything from one-off public seminars or self-help books to more detailed group courses or individual sessions.

Triple P is now used in 25 countries including the USA, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Sweden, Germany, Japan, Iran, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Netherlands, Curacao, Switzerland and Romania. It has been translated from English into 19 other languages.



Daria Spartan, JD, Guardian ad Litem

Daria has practiced law since 2002, immediately establishing the university's Center for Children's Rights. Daria has represented children in Dependency cases and served as a Guardian ad Litem/ Parenting Investigator for almost 20 years. In many cases, when the Court was faced with particularly difficult cases, Daria has often been designated to investigate and provide recommendations on how best to protect the interests of the children involved.

As a family systems professional, Daria strongly believes that by addressing the family needs holistically, rather than just through the court process, families who receive Family Transitions Triple P skill development will have a much easier path to success in coparenting.
