This talk will discuss recent trends on diverse and controversial child welfare topics such as teen sexual behavior, mental health, crime, family conflict, missing children, drug and alcohol usage, bullying and child abuse. It will explore factors that have been proposed as important explanations for trends, and distinguish those that are most plausible. It will also discuss how research can be useful to keep policy from being hijacked by transient political impulses responding to high profile tragedies and misguided public anxieties.
