He  came to see you because his wife told him that if he doesn’t get help,  she and the children are leaving. Anthony’s wife, Rosa, is  present for the initial interview. She tells you, “Anthony is not the  same man I married. Since he came back from serving our country, he is a  stranger. He drinks vodka and beer daily and has been  getting violent in the home. He has punched holes in the walls has  broken furniture.” She tells you that, “Anthony has always had a bit of  an anger problem because his father was a mean drunk and would beat his  wife and kids. Anthony has been nothing like his father until now. He scares me.”Anthony  has been accusing Rosa and their 2 children of stealing his money and  believes they are in a conspiracy to make him “go crazy”. Rosa also  tells you that Anthony has not been going to work. He believes there is  evil lurking out in the world and that he rarely leaves the house,  except to buy his alcohol. Anthony admits that he lives in terror, since  he returned from the war 5 years ago. He saw several of his buddies  killed in an explosion, suffers from debilitating migraines, has  recurring nightmares and horrific thoughts of his war experience. You  find Anthony to have good reality testing but occasionally during your  interview, he has odd and eccentric ways of explaining things. You  suspect a diagnosis of PTSD.References:Courtois, C.A. & Ford, J.D.    (2015).   Treatment of Complex Trauma: A Sequenced, Relationship-Based Approach.   The Guilford Press.      ISBN 978-1462524600
