The current study sought to contribute to the literature by examining a possible method to promote use of an evidence-based parenting intervention, Triple P, in a large-scale implementation effort. The study was designed to examine (a) the association between attendance at Peer Assisted Supervision and Support (PASS) sessions and use of Triple P with parents among providers in a state-wide adoption of Triple P and (b) characteristics of providers most likely to attend peer supervision. In addition, we examined fidelity to the PASS model and providers’ perceived fit of Triple P with typical services as moderators of the link between attendance at supervision sessions and providers’ use of Triple P.


Two hundred seventy-six Triple P accredited providers from seven county or county clusters across North Carolina completed a 19-question survey about their experiences with Triple P, including their use of the intervention, perceived fit of the intervention to their clients’ needs, fidelity to the Triple P peer assisted supervision and support (PASS) model, and attendance at peer support sessions.


Correlational analyses revealed that providers who more often attended peer support sessions used Triple P with more parents. Results of hierarchical linear regression models indicated that fidelity to the PASS model and providers’ perceived fit were not significant moderators.


This study highlights the potential importance of attending PASS sessions in terms of using Triple P to serve families. Implications of the findings for implementation of Triple P and other evidence-based parenting interventions and suggestions for further studies are provided.
