Abstract: Perhaps because the Government White Paper "Children in Trouble" represents so considerable an improvement upon its predecessor, "The Child, The Family, and The Young Offender", the author feels that it has been welcomed rather too readily by social workers. In the following two caricatured "interviews" he focusses on just one of the several features of the new proposals which should cause us some disquiet. If one "interview" has been caricatured rather more than the other it is merely to make the point.
