The Parenting and Family Support Centre (PFSC) was established in 1996 as a specialist family intervention research and training facility within the School of Psychology.

The primary aims of the PFSC are program development, research and knowledge transfer to promote the best social, emotional, behavioural and developmental outcomes in children by addressing family and community risk factors known to contribute to adverse child outcomes.

The PFSC’s primary program development and research activities revolve around its Triple P – Positive Parenting Program.

The objectives of the PFSC include:

  1. To improve the lives of families and children.
  2. To create healthy, non-violent, family-friendly communities.
  3. To make high quality, culturally informed, evidence-based parenting programs accessible for all families.
  4. To translate important research findings into policy and practice.
