The San Francisco Parent Training Institute
The Parent Training Institute (PTI) is a specialized program within the San Francisco Department of Public Health that oversees the implementation and evaluation of evidence-based parenting interventions. This website provides information and free resources for agencies and practitioners delivering evidence-based parenting, and for families looking for parenting support.
What we do:
1. We help local nonprofit and civil service providers deliver free, easily-accessible evidence-based parenting interventions. Currently, the PTI coordinates the training, implementation, and evaluation of Triple P Parenting (Positive Parenting Program), an evidence-based parenting intervention.
2. We identify and champion “practice-based evidence” within organizations whose locally-developed parenting programs achieve comparable outcomes to evidence-based curricula.
The PTI is able to provide these services free of charge to local organizations through the financial support of the following funding agencies:
