Code: BH/17/073 Triple P - Standard Teen

Standard Teen Triple P is a broadly focused parenting support intervention on a one-to one basis for parents of teenagers up to 16 years of age. After thorough family assessment, parents set their own goals, learn ways to encourage positive behaviour for teens, and teach their teens new skills such as problem solving, conflict resolution, and self-regulation. Over 10 one-to-one sessions, parents identify the influences on teenagers’ behaviour and set their own goals for change. Parents also learn ways to use appropriate consequences for problem behaviour (e.g. breaking family rules, taking inappropriate risks, emotional outbursts).

To provide Standard Teen Triple P to families, practitioners must complete the approved training programme and demonstrate their knowledge and competence in programme delivery through a skills-based accreditation process.

This is a three day course and is for Parenting Practitioners and ITF workers only. Participants will also need to attend additional accreditation sessions.

Information for Brighton & Hove City Council applicants 

Places for this course will be prioritised for workers who have already shadowed a Level 4 Teen group. As a minimum, applicants will need to commit to also co-facilitating a Triple P Teen Group in the autumn term, and subsequently commit to deliver a specified number of parenting interventions.

Please discuss with Jenny Collins jenny.collins@brighton-hove.gcsx.gov.uk before you apply.
