    This article reports on an adaptation of Duhl and Duhl's (1979) “Rent-a-Family” interview in which beginning family therapists interview non-help-seeking families. We discuss our experiences with a similar voluntary family exploration interview. Included are suggested interview questions and procedures. We also discuss the applicability and use of the voluntary family exploration interview in training family therapists.
