A Family in Therapy
McCallum, Peter & Lang, Moshe,
ISBN: 0140120785
Penguin, Ringwood, Victoria, 1989. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. This book provides a transcript of a series of therapy sessions with one family who agreed to the videotaping of their sessions for educational purposes. Accompanying the transcript are brief commentaries made by the authors from their observations of the videotapes. The views of a team of professionals who examined the transcripts and tapes are also provided at the end of the book. The result is a stimulating volume which gives the reader a rare opportunity to witness a family’s journey through therapy. The brief commentaries throughout provide clarification and elaboration about the session content and the invited professionals’ comments give a variety of perspectives which allow the reader to compare against one’s own interpretation. The book is well set out, easy to read, and informative. The combination of therapy transcripts and expert commentary and interpretation makes it a fresh and engaging volume. The flexibility in theoretical stance demonstrated by Lang does not take away from his therapeutic interventions but rather provides an exciting framework from which he operates. The book has wide appeal, particularly for those training in family therapy. Christine Senediak, Merrylands Community Health Centre. Publication Reference: Senediak, C. (1990). A Family in Therapy.

 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. Signed by Author on first page. So you thought dealing with your own mother was a challenge? Try dealing with someone else's. An etiquette guide for managing other children's Mothers and assorted Mummy dilemmas. The A to Z of Mummy Manners is a humorous and insightful tome to help new Mothers navigate a course through the maze of etiquette, morals and madness that comes from dealing with All The Other Mothers you will encounter whilst rearing your own precious child. From conception to pram etiquette, nicking nannies to racy underwear, Libbi Gorr delivers home truths and plenty of laughs about the relationships, bumps and humps that arise between Mums on the playing field of Motherhood that is never level, fertilised as it is by hormones and love. The A to Z of Mummy Manners delves into female competition but is ultimately about friendship - making friends as a Mother and keeping them. For never have trusted loyal friendships been more important or crucial, than in the new role as a Mum. -- Elle McFeast Full number line. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 224 pages.
