CDC is funding the University of South Carolina to examine the effectiveness of a multilevel intervention program called Triple P-Positive Parenting Program (www.triplep.net). The Triple P-Positive Parenting Program is a parenting and family support strategy to prevent severe behavioral, emotional, and developmental problems among children by enhancing the knowledge, skills, and confidence of parents. The project tests broad strategies aimed at preventing and reducing the risk of child maltreatment in the population and promotes positive parenting to reduce stress and child behavior problems.
