Madison, WI Jack Westman is an exceptional child and adolescent psychiatrist for over 60 plus years and the esteemed author of fourteen books including “Parent Power: The Key to American Prosperity,” “The Cancer Solution: Taking Charge of Your Life with Cancer” and “Dealing with Child Abuse and Neglect as Public Health Problems: Prevention and the Role of Juvenile Ageism.”

 “My specialty is working with families in collaboration with educational and political systems and work diligently with children with behavioral problems,” says Jack.  “I am not a doctor who prescribes medication.  I work holistically with children.  I am actively in pursuit of developing public policies to assist families so that every child has the prospect of making succeeding in the life.”

“We can take major steps towards foiling child abuse,” says Jack.  “By being actively influential in children’s lives we guide them into leadership roles.”

Jack’s most recent book has been on the atrocities and damaging effects of child abuse and neglect.  He intensely reasons that society does nothing to prevent child abuse and neglect but only intervenes when children have been damaged years after abuse has taken place.

“I’m calling attention to juvenile ageism defined as prejudice based on young age,” says Dr. Westman.  “Society imagines ageism as bias and prejudgment towards the elderly when actually the most helpless people subjected to prejudice are newborn babies and children.”

"It’s absolutely critical that adults speak out in their defense and that’s what I’ am doing,” says Jack.
