NASMHPD Prevention Center's webinar on Triple P Systems and CDC

  • The evidence-based Triple P System is a population-based health approach to fostering positive parenting with the aim of reaching as many people as possible to have the greatest preventative impact on a community.  It is a multi-level system offering a suite of programs of increasing intensity, each catering to a different level of family need.
  • CDC Legacy for Children™ is an evidence-based program whose aim is to improve child outcomes by promoting positive parenting among low-income mothers of infants and young children. The program is based on four key areas of parenting: parent self-efficacy, the parent–child relationship, parent responsibility, and a sense of community.


  • Ron Prinz, Ph.D., Director of the Parenting & Family Research Center at the University of South Carolina;
  • Ruth Perou, Ph.D. and Susanna Visser, M.S. of the Child Development Studies office at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
