Oxford University Press

Review by Jenny Doh

The Welfare of Children is one of the most respected research-based books within the field of public child welfare. Duncan Lindsay helps us contextualize the current system of the way in which our residual approach to intervening in the troubled lives of children and families has evolved within our nation. He makes an audacious argument for a different approach — one where the most egregious cases be turned over to law enforcement, and for an investment of dollars to be made earlier to support families in order to prevent maltreatment of children. 

It is a fascinating book that is backed up with solid research from one of the leading academics in the field. It is a book that forces us to examine the way our children are treated within the public child welfare arena, and most importantly, how we could better treat them. Learn more here.


There really does seem to be a need for higher goals regarding the care of children that have no voice or supporting advocative. The system certainly seems antiquated
and unable to reflect the pov many of us aspire to in our own lives. Breaking the cycle of self destructive behavior passed from one generation to the next seems to be by intervening in the lives of children- and not soley the parents. I'm interested to know more about how he feels about that and how he would propose fleshing this out with all the attending potential backlash of being percieved as undermining the unique family dynamic.
