Abstract: This study investigated the effectiveness of the Triple P Programme to reduce non-compliant behaviour in three solo father families. Using behavioural monitoring, observational coding, and self-report questionnaires, outcome measures included non-compliant behaviour, the quality of the parent-child relationship, parenting efficacy, parental mental health, and parenting practices. A measure of change was also included to identify change points in the therapeutic process. Results suggest that parent training is effective in the reduction of non-compliant behaviour, as positive changes were found across all the measures employed. This early intervention has the potential to increase child compliance with solo fathers, and contributes to the knowledge base about this under-reported population. Limitations of the study and directions for future research are discussed.
