This website aims to contain the most comprehensive listing of all research associated with the Triple P evidence-base. It will continue to be updated as new research becomes available.
To see more information about an article, including downloadable versions where available, click the article's title.
The evidence base includes scientific papers that have contributed to the theory and development of essential procedures involved in forming part of the Triple P system of parenting interventions. This includes research related to the efficacy, effectiveness and dissemination of intervention programs, epidemiological studies, correlational studies, service-based research, evaluations of professional training, large-scale population trials, and meta-analyses. It also includes observational studies of family interaction and independent program evaluations.
The studies included have made a contribution to the evaluation and continuing evolution of the Triple P system. If you become aware of Triple P-related research—published in any language—that we have not included on this website, please contact us.

The Triple P—Positive Parenting Program is one of the world’s most effective parenting interventions and one of the few based on ongoing evidence from scientific research. Developed by Professor Matt Sanders and colleagues at The University of Queensland (Australia), Triple P has been shown to work across hundreds of thousands of families through over 30 years of research.
More than 100 international studies have shown Triple P to be effective across countries, socio-economic groups and in many different family structures.
The Parenting and Family Support Centre (PFSC) was established in 1996 as a specialist family intervention research and training facility within the School of Psychology at The University of Queensland.
Our mission is to promote the health and wellbeing of families and children by conducting research and training, and by providing clinical services based on scientifically validated methods of family intervention.
The primary aim of the PFSC is to prevent behavioural and emotional problems in children by enhancing the skills and confidence of parents and by addressing family risk factors known to contribute to adverse developmental outcomes in children. The PFSC's primary research and clinical activities revolve around its Triple P - Positive Parenting Program.
