The perceived impact and acceptability of Group Triple P Positive Parenting Program for Aboriginal parents in Canada
A qualitative study was conducted to examine the perceived impact and cultural acceptability of the Group Triple P parenting program when delivered to Aboriginal parents in Northwest Ontario, Canada. Eight group facilitators and 11 parents participated in the study. All parents identified themselves as Aboriginal as did 4 facilitators. Parents had completed the Group Triple P parenting program, using either regular or Indigenous resources. Perceived improvements in parenting skills, child behavior and competency, and parent/child relationships were reported. The role plays, Indigenous workbooks and visual strategies were a good fit with the learning style of Aboriginal parents, and the strategies promoted within the program were perceived to be consistent with the cultural values of participant parents. Recommendations included making the images and scenarios more relevant to Aboriginal people in Canada as well as recognizing the program may have more limited impact with families with complex needs.
