Triple P Primary Care – 11-16 Years
If your child has a particular behaviour problem that is making family life more difficult than it should be, then Primary Care Triple P can help. This is a very brief and private way for parents to get Triple P support. There are usually about four sessions (although sometimes more, sometimes less). It will be just you (and your partner, if you wish) and a Triple P provider who is trained and accredited to offer Triple P.
You will talk with your provider about the problem you have and 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 sent a tip sheet and given suggestions to deal with the problem. The tip sheet 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.
The topics for discussion are
Coping with anxiety
Rudeness and disrespect
Coping with depression
Sexual behaviour and dating
Friends and relationships
