The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program© is one of the world’s most effective parenting programs. It is based on evidence from on-going scientific research, with over 100 trials and studies around the world showing it has benefits regardless of a family’s culture, country, or situation.
Triple P engages, encourages, and empowers parents, building the necessary confidence and skills to raise competent, healthy children and teenagers, and to build stronger family relationships, manage misbehavior and prevent behavior problems from occurring in the first place.
Individualized to each family, Triple P is not a one-size-fits-all parenting program. Its a multi-level system that offers increasing levels of education and support to meet the varying needs of parents. The Cochise Family Advocacy Center's Triple P facilitator is trained and certified by the University of Queensland for Level 4 and Level 5 Triple P interventions.
Positive Discipline has been the gold standard reference for adults working with children for more than 25 years. Created by Dr. Jane Nelsen, the curricula distinguishes discipline from punishment and focuses on building relationships based on mutual respect.
The model is appropriate for use with children ranging from toddler-hood into the teenage years and covers:
the dangers of praise
build on strengths, not weaknesses
holding children accountable with their self-respect intact
teaching children how to think not what to think
The Cochise Family Advocacy Center's Positive Discipline facilitator is trained and certified by the Positive Discipline Association.
A curriculum debuted by Prevent Child Abuse Arizona and designed to teach family service professionals actionable ways that they can help parents/caregivers build protective factors in their families, this learning option focuses on increasing resilience, coping skills, and connection.
The five protective factors, identified by the Center for the Study of Social Policy, help keep families strong, make sure children develop optimally, and prevent child abuse and neglect. They are:
Knowledge of parenting and child development.
Concrete support in times of need.
Social and emotional competence of children.
Each of Cochise Family Advocacy Center's Victim Advocates is trained in Flourishing Families.
The Growing Brain
Aimed at professionals this innovative training focuses on evidence-informed strategies to prepare early childhood providers for their vital role in building healthy brains.

Participants will learn skills and strategies for:
Teaching early childhood providers about brain development (architecture and neurobiology) to inform their practice
Supporting language, cognition, prosocial behavior, and social-emotional development
Reducing toxic stress that can negatively influence brain development of very young children.
