Rationale for Rating:

Teen Triple P did not have any randomized controlled trials. The program did provide several well-designed studies with positive outcomes. Some of these studies were considered pilot studies because it was the first time Teen Triple P was studied on these specific populations. We have selected a rating of promising because parents consistently reported positive outcomes, however, sample sizes were small and there is no indication that the population samples are generalizable.
