Dave, a 16-year old boy, is seen in an intake counseling session accompanied by his mother. His mother is worried because Dave is so angry. Dave tells you that he hates his parents. He tells you that he is sick of his father’s alcoholic rages and his mother making excuses for them. Mom tells you that Dave will argue and pick a fight with his father when Dad is drinking. Often times, this ends with fights between Dave and his Dad. On more than one occasion Dave has suffered from a black eye. Dave tells you that he only picks these fights to protect his 12-year old brother by “getting the heat off of him”. Mom tells you that it’s always impossible for her to tell who started the physical fight and asks what she should do.
