Corrupting The Young: And Other Stories of a Family Therapist

Moshe Lang, Tesse Lang
First ed., Rene Gordon, Australia, 1986

Foreword: Max Cornwell, Editor of Australian and New Zealand Journal of Family Therapy

Moshe Lang is a natural story-teller whose many years as a family therapist have provided the raw material for these delightful short stories. They cover marriage, parent/child relationships, and all the frustrations, wry pleasures and pressures of family life. Some are wise anecdotes that reflect universal truths, others show how family therapy works, sometimes despite the therapist.

In Corrupting the Young: and Other Stories of a Family Therapist, Moshe Lang’s immense gift as a raconteur is tempered by the wisdom of his years as a therapist.

Tesse Lang’s sense of humour, feeling for words and fine judgement give these stories impact and charm. Together they have created a singularly satisfying collection of stories for the professional and the lay reader.

Corrupting the Young: and Other Stories of a Family Therapist was a Top 10 Bestseller in The Herald for 6 weeks: from late July to the end of August 1986.
