Project Description

Students will provide support to a community-based implementation initiative of the Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) funded by the Behavioral Health and Service Integration Administration of the Washington Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS). The Triple P program is a multi-level public health oriented parent education and support program designed to provide parents with effective management skills to address child emotional and behavioral concerns. The Triple P system consists of 5 intervention levels, ranging from universal prevention (level 1) to indicated prevention (levels 2 and 3) to targeted intervention (levels 4 and 5). Detailed descriptions of these intervention levels are available at

During the summer, project staff will conduct a Social Network Analysis Study as part of the evaluation of the Triple P implementation initiative.  Specifically, we will use social network analysis as an evaluation tool to understand how existing relationships between organizations in Pierce County who participate in the Triple P training impact the provision of behavioral supports to families. In addition we will also evaluate the impact of Triple P implementation on community-level changes in connectivity between these organizations over time. The results will be used for learning and improvement purposes on how to better support the implementation of evidence-based parenting interventions.


Opportunities are available for 1-3 credits @ 3hrs per credit/week. We also accept volunteers for a minimum of 3 hours per week.

Other duties include

  • Assist in the coordination of survey data collection from multiple sites
