I am so dreading tomorrow. After the meeting we have to have with the PO, we have to go do the intervention that the therapist thinks is going to fix everything. I still don't see how putting difficult child in a room full of people pointing out all the wrong he has done, and prodding him for reasons for his behavior is going to help. He is just going to do what he always does. He will either blow up or shut down, and nothing will be accomplished. His therapist thinks he will open up about what is causing his "deep-seeded rage", and that it will be a breaking point for him. What he doesn't understand is that it has been done before. They tried it when he was in inpatient, and he simply shut down. husband has tried to confront him with the issues and get to the root of them at least twice a week for the last three years. All he ever does is blame everyone else in the house. He says that the root of all his problems is us, and that he doesn't need help. Maybe I am just being negative. Maybe it will be some sort of breaking point, but I still believe he needs the residential treatment. His therapist seems to think that after this, he won't need inpatient. I am praying this does some good, but I really don't see it happening at this point.
