NRNP - 6645 Psychotherapy with Multiple Modalities Family Assessment and Psychotherapeutic Approaches Historian: Mother and daughter (Self) Language: English Name: Non- listed Gender: Both female... (mother and daughter) Age: 40 years old and 23 years old. Chief complaint — “I am in so much pain, nobody can help me and nothing is helping me manage the pain. I want my mom to be more peaceful, I want her to lower her expectations and accept a lot of things about life, I have a sense that my mom is holding me back from all I could be doing”. I just want them to spend time with me, I am very lonely, and I get depressed when I am lonely. I hate spending time with my mother, I hate her house, she has two dogs and I do not like those at all, I do not like their hair on my body and I do not like touching them. Do you believe I cannot even eat in her house, everything smells like dog, and it is very uncomfortable for me”. History of present illness (HPI) — This patient is a 40-year-old Iranian American female. She is here today to be seen for complex family dynamic issues as it relates to her and her five children.
