The purpose of this study was to clarify the effects of ASE on the family from the perspective of "a new awareness of family". The subject of study was a family which had experienced the ASE at Biwako Seikei Sports College on August 18, 2013. The family consisted of five members: a father, a mother, two sons and a daughter. Upon completion of the ASE activities, participants completed a New Awareness reflection sheet. In addition, recordings of their experience were transcribed and analyzed by the researcher. Results from the study indicated that during the ASE the children were able to gain a new awareness of their parents and the parents discovered new capabilities relating to overall growth of their children. The ASE became an opportunity to build a stronger relationship among family members.
