          A Family's Battle with a Violent Son

          October 07, 2014

          Sharon and her ex-husband, Robert, say their 25-year-old son, Craig — who was diagnosed with schizophrenia — is so violent and explosive, they fear he might follow through with his repeated threats and actually kill someone. Craig’s sister, Amber, says she’s so afraid of her brother, who admittedly carries weapons, that she once had a restraining order against him to prevent him from coming near her and her 7-year-old son. Dr. Phil sits down with Craig and his family in search of a resolution. How does he explain his behavior? And, how can Craig get back on track and regain his family’s trust?

          Craig describes the violent voices he says he hears in his head. Does he think he‘s capable of hurting someone?

          Lauren, Craig’s ex-girlfriend and the mother of his 4-year-old son, joins everyone onstage — and Craig grows agitated.

          “Do you think I’m schizophrenic?”

          Tune in to hear Dr. Phil’s offer of help to Craig — will he accept?
