Professional Information

Early Start offer a range of classes and information that professionals working with families can refer to

Professional Strategy Seminar

The Professional strategy workshop was developed to support practitioners  who make referrals to the Parenting Team and work directly with families.

The Parenting Team have created a half day workshop in order to orientate professionals working in Newham to the strategies used in Triple P.

The concept is to encourage practitioners to understand Triple P strategies to enable them to support the families they have referred to the Triple P Programme.

It is not a training course for practitioners to be able to deliver the programme

Information for Professionals

Roles and Referrals

As a professional there might be times when making a referral to Triple P would be an appropriate course of action to support a family. Please take the following points into consideration and understand yours and the families roles in the referral process:

  • When making a referral consider what group would best suit the parent/s needs
  • If Triple P is part of a Child Protection plan, Social Workers should observe the parent/s and child to ensure strategies are understood and being put into place
  • Consider how families who live apart from their children can but their learning into practice
  • Be realistic in regards to changes that can be made
  • Ensure families are able to commit to the full programme, groups are challenging and require commitment to be effective 

In order to orientate professionals working in Newham to the new offer and how to access services, we would like to invite you to attend a Parenting Programme Professional Seminar.

The seminar will cover:

  • Triple P Positive Parenting
  • Core Principles
  • Programme and services available
  • How to refer and what is expected
  • Time for question and answers

Upcoming Dates

April 24th 09:45 - 11:00
