We are excited to announce a new parenting education program being launched in Lane County – the Positive Parenting Program, or Triple P.
Triple P is an evidence-based program, shown to be effective at improving parenting skills, reducing stress in parents, and improving the health and wellbeing of children.
There will be three phases of Triple P roll out. The phase that will reach the most Lane County families is the Stay Positive Parents campaign. This campaign will be promoted across Lane County via social media, advertisements and articles with stay-positive parenting tips and strategies. Posters and brochures with these tips and strategies are being distributed throughout February 2016 to healthcare clinics, schools and other places that reach parents. Please help share the posters and brochures with families and contact Parenting Now! at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more materials.
The collaboration will also introduce Triple P positive parenting tip sheets and other parent support materials into healthcare settings so that families who are looking for support and skills can get those tips right when they need them from their children’s healthcare providers.
Finally, families on the Oregon Health Plan with Trillium will be given free access to the Triple P Online available at www.lanekids.org/triplep. Parents who are unable to attend parenting groups will still be able to get free state-of-the-art parenting education in an online format, so that they can get help where they need it, when they need it.
Triple P is brought to you by Trillium Community Health Plan in partnership with Lane County Public Health, LaneKids, Parenting Now!, and Oregon Research Institute.
