Smith College School for Social Work at 100
In 1918, social work pioneer Mary Jarrett joined with Smith College president and the country’s preeminent psychiatrists to address the nation’s growing mental health crisis. Their radical experiment resulted in the first School for Social Work in the country and, in the hundred years since, has empowered change in the lives of countless individuals and families. Clinical Revolution is a 20-minute film tracing the common threads running from SSW’s beginnings to the present. It emphasizes the progressive vision of “founding mothers” Mary Jarrett and Bertha Capen Reynolds, and the deans and faculty who followed and extended its mission.
