We provide Triple P parenting support! Soon we will be accredited in TEENS! 

Quote from a Triple P Parent Participant:

"Now that I have had some time developing some experiences using the Triple P techniques that you taught me in my home, I feel it is appropriate to say Thank You, again. Your customized training for the things that Cole and I were going through at the time was a godsend, because I felt like I was at the end of my rope and beginning to question if I was going to be able to cope with the task of raising my grandson properly. You took the time to teach me the needed techniques that were fundamental to dealing with Cole's behavior, and how to use the report forms effectively in tracking progress to our goals. You might remember our first review of the completed forms when I realized that our incident issues weren't happening every day as I had thought; which gave me a significant boost in confidence from the start. You tied it all together with meaningful training that was specific to our needs and we are having a meaningful and more loving and caring relationship because of your efforts to get me up to speed with the Triple P program.  My thanks to you and Partners In Learning for making this training available in a critical time for Cole and I. I'm not sure we would be where we are today if it hadn't been for your efforts, the support of your organization and the funding that you receive from whatever resources that you have; we never spoke much about those things. Please accept my heart-felt thanks for a job well done."
