Stepping Stones Triple P Research Project Findings

Triple P

More evidence that Stepping Stones Triple P works for parents.

As EarlyEd is currently running the series of 3 Stepping Stones Triple P it is timely to receive news of how effective the program is proving for parents. On Friday the NSW Stepping Stones Triple P Research Team sent EarlyEd the newly released report on the outcomes of the major project to evaluate Stepping Stones Triple P.

EarlyEd has been involved in this project from start. We attended the launch in 2012 and signed up to be part in the research because we want to be able to offer evidence based behaviour support programs to parents. We have staff trained and qualified to offer this program to families, and  continue to be committed to finding ways to offer it to families in the future using their NDIS funding.

The Stepping Stones Triple P project team have released the report on the outcomes of the evaluation of the Stepping Stones Triple P program which commenced in 2012.

The following are the key points about the program’s effectiveness for parents:

Triple P

Was the Program Effective?

We checked in with families three months after they attended a Stepping Stones program. We learned that, as a result Stepping Stones, life was better in many ways.

Child Behaviour Improved

On all measures of negative child behaviour, a significant decrease was shown three months after intervention and these gains were maintained 3 months later.

Parents Improved Their Parenting Skills

Parents became more consistent in their parenting strategies.  They used fewer coercive strategies and used more positive encouragement.  A year after the program the improvements were maintained.

Parental Stress, Anxiety and Depression Significantly Decreased

Following participation in a Stepping Stones program, parents reported lower levels of stress, anxiety and depression.  However, even through stress, anxiety and depression improved, the experience of these problems were still significantly at a higher level than in the general Australian community.
