Question 2 0 out of 1 points The PMHNP is meeting with a single mother and her 19-year-old son who lives with her. The son complains that his mother is always nagging him. What is the PMHNP’s interpretation of this scenario according to a complementarity approach? Response Feedback: “A” is the correct answer. According to complementarity concepts, two parts in the relationship complement each other. In this case, the mother’s nagging is only half of the pattern of mutual influence. Therefore, the PMHNP may assume that the son is playing a part in this as well. “B” is incorrect, as the mother is not disrupting the attachment bond. “C” is incorrect, as the mother and son are not false
presenting a negative feedback loop. Therefore, “D” is also incorrect. See Nichols, M., The Essentials of Family Therapy (6th ed.), Chapter 4, p. 59 for further information.
