Will my family have to be with during a clinical assessment?

Not necessarily, only if the patient is requesting their family is with them, and in some cases, a qualified clinician can determine what type of family history is there. It is not uncommon that family relationships may be broken or severely damaged, and the patient will be uncomfortable with having them there during the assessment.
