Overview of Level 4 Fear-Less Triple P

  • Fear-Less Triple P is a cognitive-behavioral parenting intervention that supports parents to help children manage their anxiety more effectively. The program encourages parents to generalize strategies to all family members, not just the child who is experiencing anxiety.

  • Currently, Fear-Less Triple P can be offered in 6 - 8 one-on-one sessions or group classes. This program is best suited for families with children between 6 – 14 years old who have moderate to high levels of anxiety that cause significant distress or impact on their everyday functioning.

  • Over the course of 6 - 8 sessions, parents learn and practice how to: Understand anxiety; Promote emotional resilience; Set a good example and encourage realistic thinking; Understand avoidance; Respond to children’s anxiety; Teach children constructive problem-solving skills; Track and maintain progress.

  • Practitioners use a combination of assessments, a workbook, videos, role plays, coaching, and “homework” to help parents/caregivers set their own goals; develop and implement parenting plans that are tailored to their cultural, linguistic, and family needs; and track and maintain progress.
