From my personal, as well as professional experience, being highly intelligent is not always an advantage !
Has he ever explained to you why he clams up and doesn't speak to the psychologists you arrange for ? What does he think might happen if he talks to them ? He may have unrealistically gloomy ideas about the effects of being frank in speaking to the shrinks, and alleviating such anxiety can be helpful.
That he is still weeping about the death of his grandfather 4 years ago, suggests that this is highly relevant here, and needs to be dealt with.
Would it help to speak frankly with him about how you miss his grandfather ( ? your father ? ) ; and how much you know the old man loved him, and wanted only the best for him ' and would be sorry to know he was having troubles, and would want him to speak with the psychologists and work to get things right, so he can behave well and be loved and respected by more people, and achieve good things in his life, rather than just to keep on getting into trouble. It'd be interesting to see if he was open to such discussion
