Overview of Level 5 Family Transitions Triple P

  • Family Transitions Triple P is designed for parents who are experiencing personal distress from separation or divorce, which is impacting on or complicating their parenting. During five sessions, Family Transitions Triple P assists parents who need extra support to adjust and manage the transition of separation or divorce. It focuses on skills to resolve conflicts with former partners and how to cope positively with stress.

  • Over the course of five session, parents learn and practice strategies to help themselves and their children talk about the impact of separation and divorce on the family, cope with emotions, challenge unhelpful thoughts, take care of themselves, manage conflict with a co-parent/former partner, and develop a new family identify and social supports.

  • The Family Transitions sessions are offered to parents prior to beginning an in-depth (Level 4) program.

  • Practitioners use a combination of assessments, workbooks, 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.
