The corruption and failure of America’s Foster Care and Child Welfare System

Joachim Hagopian has been a practicing clinical psychologist and marriage counselor practicing in California for over 25 years, with an emphasis on disadvantaged youth and the child welfare system. For years he has worked with child abuse victims and learning disabilities in diverse settings including residential homes and outpatient clinics.

From a Congressional appointment, Joachim attended the US Military Academy at West Point through a Congressional appointment in the late 1960s.  After clashing with the system he was railroaded out at the end of his third year. This resulted in Joachim filing charges against the academy with failure to allow due process and he won the case in a New York federal district court. This case set the precedent that continues today for cadets the right to present their case and witness before the academy.  He eventually completed his education at West Point and served as an officer – many of his classmates now being top high ranking officers in the Department of Defense. Joachim’s story is retold in his manuscript book “Don’t Let The Bastards Getcha Down.”  In addition he writes on issues about geopolitics, national security and international relations for Global Research, many which have been featured on the Public Radio Network and Boiling Frogs. His articles can be found at under Hagopian, and his West Point book at
