Triple P - Postive Parenting Program
Each of the five modules below are part of the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program. With a range of focus areas, these curricula are evidence-based – proven to reduce stress levels in parents and behavior problems in children.
Triple P Stepping Stones: Stepping Stones is a series (6 in-person or 12 virtual + 3 phone consultations) designed for families of children with a range of disabilities including autism spectrum disorders and elevated levels of disruptive behavior. As with all Triple P courses, parents learn how to improve their relationship with their child, set goals for positive behavior, develop routines and plan for high-risk situations. This class has a special emphasis on communication, problem-solving, self-care and self-regulation.
Triple P Selected Seminars: These three distinct workshops cover three topic areas: the Power of Positive Parenting; Raising Competent, Confident Children; and Raising Resilient Children.
Triple P Child Behavior Management Series: This four-part seminar is based on the Triple P curriculum, which is proven to reduce behavior problems in children by helping parents remain positive in the most challenging situations with their children. Participants will learn why children behave the way they do, how to teach new skills and positive behaviors, tools to manage misbehavior and how to plan ahead for high-risk situations.
Triple P Avoiding Power Struggles: After completion of the Child Behavior Management Series, parents struggling with ‘parent traps’ and power struggles with their children are encouraged to attend this four-session follow-up series. Attendees will learn to recognize and cope with anger in a positive way to build effective discipline techniques while under stress.
Triple P Family Transitions: Family Transitions is intended for families dealing with separation or divorce and its subsequent impacts on children and family life. A precursor to the Child Behavior Management series, this five-part class helps individuals address the new challenges of communication, conflict resolution, and positive stress management while transitioning from a two-parent family to a single-parent family. In addition, attendees will learn strategies for supporting their children through this major life change.
Garden Discovery Days
Parents and kids will buzz like bees, emerge as a beautiful butterflies and cluck like chickens! Garden Discovery Days are adventures that connect your child with the garden as they learn where their food comes from and engage in nature crafts. Children are involved in the entire class.
Positive Discipline is a current, engaging and creative curriculum that can be used from age three through the teenage years. Positive Discipline is an evidence-informed curriculum that helps parents change the way they look at their children. It creates a paradigm shift so their reactions to child misbehavior generate more empathy and more empowering consequences.
Empowering People in the Workplace
Empowering People in the Workplace is a curriculum designed to improve workplace climate and culture – using the Positive Discipline Curriculum. Employees learn skills to improve relationships with each other. Topics include ‘listening beyond the words, solutions vs. consequences and clarifying your why’. Participants feel better able to manage conflict and become more motivated in their work.
