The population approach to parenting support evolved over a period of four decades from its historical roots in behavioral parent training. Impetus for this evolution came from three primary sources: (a) the undoubted success of parent training models based primarily on social learning theory in assisting parents of children with conduct problems; (b) the recognition that traditional ways of delivering parenting programs were reaching few parents; and (c) the success of public health approaches in modifying health risk behaviors. This chapter introduces the Triple P—Positive Parenting Program as a multilevel system of parenting support. We highlight the defining features of the multilevel system, including its logic model and the essential criteria that need to be met for a population approach to work.
