Corrupting the Young: and Other Stories of a Family Therapist.
Tesse and Moshe Lang, Corrupting the Young and Other Stories of a Family Therapist. Australia, Rene Gordon Pty Ltd, 1986. No price.
This is a delightful little book, a collection of fifty-three stories, gathered together by the Moshe Lang’s clinical practice. Each story has a moral, and most have a sting in the tail. What is so refreshing is that as many stories tell against the authors as do those that show what brilliant therapy has been performed. There is a wealth of wisdom, warmth, compassion and creativity in this book, and it made me wish I could meet the Langs. The blurb says it is for lay readers as well as professionals. My rational self-doubts this, but the stories are so full of surprises that it should be no surprise if indeed the lay reader does enjoy and benefit from them.
