The double and triple bonds are also treated as one region of electron density because, although they have more electrons that a lone pair or single bond, the electrons lie in the same region (between the two bonded atoms) and they are oriented in the same direction. This means that it is technically one region with either four or six electrons (depending on the type of bond).
Multiple bonds are treated as single regions of high electron density because these bonds always act as a single unit. Thus, any resonance structure of a particular molecule will have the same shape as determined by the VSEPR model. Hope this helps!
