Summary

The Family Expedition is a federally funded program designed to foster healthy changes in families with troubled adolescents through multifamily adventure therapy experiences. Each Family Expedition cycle is 4 months long, consisting of six multifamily sessions and three home visits. Each 90-minute home visit gives families time to focus on specific issues they may not wish to address in the multifamily group. During the initial home visit, the therapists affiliate with the family, outline the investment necessary for program participation, inform the family about potential change processes, introduce solution-oriented goal setting, and collect information for assessment and formulation of hypotheses. A useful model for guiding this first visit is the CHANGES model, which focuses on examining the client context, hypothesizing about potential client issues and resolutions, utilizing a novel action to determine the validity of therapists' hypotheses, generating information, evaluating initial hypotheses, and establishing potential solutions. The "novel action" is begun within the first 15 minutes in order to lower anxiety levels, engage all family members, and draw family members into a "safe but not too comfortable environment" in which their belief systems are projected onto the novel activity for the therapists to observe. Seven guidelines for home visits using the CHANGES model are outlined. A case example describes the use of the board game "Pass the Pigs" as part of assessment and goal setting. (Author/SV)
