I would immediately get him the book which saved my life : The Verbally Abusive Relationship by Patricia Evans (I am also a counselor in training), and a collegue of mine gives the book out in his practice, constantly....or you could go over it with him and help him understand that someone else's behavior has nothing to do with him; that this "father" is angry over stuff in his past. As children, that is hard to understand.

Alice Miller was an amazing woman and author; I quoted her in a paper of mine and she (humbling to me) is an endorser of my book.

I had a helping witness......all you can do is listen to him, and validate his thoughts and feelings ...that is so important; especially to a child; to know his thoughts and feelings are heard and even moreso, someone cares.
