Health professionals can now populate their practice or personal Facebook page with regular, good-quality blogs, memes, tips, videos and parent stories. This social media friendly content is created by Queensland’s evidence-based Triple P – Positive Parenting Program.
Every day, Triple P’s Facebook page is updated with shareable content based on information that is clinically reliable, ethical, inclusive and non-judgmental.
Daily content can include:
- “Top 10 Tips” for parents
- Triple P’s “Thought of the Day”
- links to blogs from Triple P founder Professor Matt Sanders, Teen Triple P author Dr Alan Ralph and other Triple P professionals around the world
- videos of real-life parents sharing their parenting ups and downs
Triple P Content Writer and Producer Linden Dale says practitioners and organisations wanting to build their own Facebook communities need to have a constant flow of entertaining, fresh and relevant posts. Mrs Dale says sourcing and posting material can be time consuming, and often gets postponed in busy workplaces.
“The work we do at Triple P can help support practitioners who want to share trustworthy content that is fun and relevant to their community,” she says.
“Everything we post aims to reassure parents that they’re not alone. It’s about promoting the idea that asking for parenting help – whether that’s Triple P or any other quality evidence-based parenting program – is positive and normal.”
Also available to share on social media is Triple P’s Queensland-only parenting magazine, the Tippaper. The Autumn/Winter issue focuses on how parents can create a safe, interesting environment for their children, and the benefits that can flow from that.
The Tippaper is published online, with an extended print version delivered to schools, early childhood education and care centres, community organisations, libraries and PCYCs throughout the state.
