This unique training tool features an in-depth interview with Hector Matascastillo, an Army Ranger and combat veteran who was arrested after abusing his wife. In the aftermath of his arrest, Matascastillo was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and he began a transformative journey of change, which is recounted in this film. Mr. Matascastillo describes the abuse of his wife, and how it was complicated by the PTSD symptoms he experienced. 

The facilitator’s guide and companion video are designed for presentations and trainings on intimate partner violence (IPV) involving military personnel and veterans. The discussions that come out of this training are intended to further understanding of IPV, especially among professionals who intervene with victims/survivors and IPV perpetrators.
