Triple P Family Transitions Group


Family Transitions Triple P is a positive parenting program that helps you protect your child from the impact of divorce or separation.

Over five weeks, in small group sessions with a Family Transitions provider, you will explore everything from stress and anger management, to how to communicate better with your ex-partner.

Your Family Transitions Triple P provider will give you new ideas about managing the day-to-day struggles and ongoing trauma of your situation. It is not a mediation program, so you attend without your ex-partner.
