"Nation on the Couch tackles a disturbing question which we normally treat as rhetorical. What is wrong with us South Africans, as a nation? With scholarly erudition and clinical wisdom, Wahbie Long shows that facing up to some unwelcome facts about how we relate to ourselves via each other opens a way out of the morass." Mark Solms, Research Chair of the International Psychoanalytical Association
"Indisputably one of the brightest young stars in the field of psychotherapy. Wahbie Long's Nation on the Couch is a timely and groundbreaking book." Jonathan Jansen, Distinguished Professor, Faculty of Education, Stellenbosch University
