Corrupting The Young: And Other Stories of a Family Therapist

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

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.

The Long Shadow

Moshe Lang

Generation: a journal of Australian Jewish life, thought & community, 4(1) 1994, pp 22-49

Moshe Lang, a leading family therapist in Australia and author of numerous books in the area of his professional expertise, has written the central article of this edition’s symposium. Detailing several case histories of Holocaust survivors and members of their families, it offers comment and reflection upon the long shadow cast by the trauma, as well as upon the resolutions he is often instrumental in affecting. Responses to his article by academics and mental health professionals from Australia and overseas comprise another section of the symposium, while two children of survivors also offer their thoughts and words in articles that add new chapters to a story many thought was already completed.
