Professor Matt Sanders Master Class – June 1, 2016 

C.O.P.E. Family Support Center co-hosted an internationally known expert to meet with local service providers and community leaders.

Dr. Matt Sanders, creator of the Triple P Parenting Programused in 25 countries to improve parenting skills and reduce child abuse. Triple P has been shown to reduce parent’s stress, anxiety and conflict with partners, as well as improve children’s behavior problems.

Dr. Sanders met with county leaders about expanding Triple P in Contra Costa County and facilitated two ‘Master Class’ trainings for Triple P practitioners. Nearly 2,000 parents have taken classes since we expanded Triple P services in Contra Costa County two years ago in partnership with Contra Costa Health Services, Behavioral Health.

Dr. Sanders said Triple P is “not a one-size-fits-all kind of parenting class because parents can choose the level of help they need.”

Triple P services range from online support and workshops to more intensive one-on-one and group coaching and classes.

“Parents don’t like unsolicited advice. We offer them the level of support they need to deal with their parenting challenges, and then get on with life.”
