Three years ago the client ran away from a downtown hotel in New York, where he was living with his father. He complained that his father is alcoholic and not responsible. He complained that the father usually lay around the whole day, drinks alcohol and physically abused him by hitting him hard. After running away from his dad, the department of social services placed him in a foster home with Larry Smith.
Mr. Larry Smith home is located in a middle-class neighborhood in the hills. The house is quite spacious, lovely and situated in a serene environment. Arts and books adorn his wall, which in his opinion is for storytelling and knowledge that there are other parts of the world out there that need to be explored. The house also has big comfortable furniture so that Fin and other two teenage boys under the care of Mr. Larry Smith can enjoy spending time in the house common place. Mr. Larry usually strives to maintain an orderly home atmosphere as Fin has a common habit of engaging the other two teenage boys in quarrels and fight.
Fin post-traumatic stress disorder started after his mother and siblings were killed by the Islamic militia. He says that when he was still under the care of his dad, he was not able to talk and eat the whole day after the traumatic incident. He was later taken to the hospital by his dad and was discharged after three days. Although it has been eight years now since that traumatic incidence, he says that he still suffers from the loss and sometimes he goes into depression.
