Conducting family work in the home provides several advantages. For example, home-based assessments of family functioning might produce more accurate and complete evaluations of a family than office-based assessments. In the home, family social workers receive immediate and direct information about family functioning and develop a complete picture of the family relationships as members interact within a familiar environment. Most families also appreciate receiving services in the home. Office-based family therapy assumes that the client’s changes during an office interview can be easily applied to settings and situations outside the office in the home and community. Yet, these changes do not consistently or easily transfer from office settings to the home.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
