Indigenous triple P effectiveness in community settings



This University of Queensland research project evaluated outcomes for Indigenous families accessing the Triple P parenting program in community settings across Australia.

The study followed on from a previous research project to evaluate the efficacy of a culturally adapted version of the Group triple P program for Indigenous families.

Both research projects took into account the fact that most evidence for the effectiveness of family intervention programs is based on the use of these programs in mainstream cultures. For parenting programs to be successful across cultures, they need to be sensitive to the cultural context in which parenting takes place.

The research project, which ran from 2003 to 2006, was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council.
