Overview

The memoir of her career by a Boston woman, Maida Herman Solomon (1891-1988), who worked to build a profession of psychiatric social work (later also clinical social work), in a unique collaboration with her prominent psychiatrist husband.

Coming of age in the Progressive era, Maida Solomon was a rebel who fused her interests both imaginatively and constructively throughout her life. She was founding President of the American Association of Psychiatric Social Workers in 1926; and she helped found the Massachusetts Academy of Psychiatric Social Work in the 1970's. The Solomons' book, "Syphilis of the Innocent," from 1922 is a classic of the field; and Maida Solomon's study of the field from the 1940's was used as a text in schools of social work throughout the country. Her research group in the 1960's and '70's published many seminal books and articles. During a long career as a social worker and professor of social work, she blended mentoring, program development, research, and work on the institutional development of her profession, while supporting the training of social workers in a human service philosophy and methods that enabled the emergence of a fully modern professional social work.

Accompanying the memoir are short excerpts from documents by contemporaries, historians, and Solomon herself; and two longer essays, "Reflections on the Career of Maida Solomon: Program Development, Research, and Training" by Helen Z. Reinherz, Professor at the Simmons College School of Social Work, and "Notes on the Professional Partnership of Maida Solomon and Harry Solomon - from 'Taped Interviews with Dr. Harry C. Solomon,' " by Judy Radner.

Editorial Reviews

Reference and Research Book News
"Solomon's accomplishments were many, but she is best remembered as a pioneer in creating a profession of psychiatric social work which evolved into today's clinical social work. In this collection of articles and background essays, interspersed with selections from Solomon's oral reminiscences about her career, we find just how determined she had to be in a world where married women of her class dabbled in charitable work but had no expectation of entering and changing the professional world. Articles and transcripts of interviews describe Solomon's unique partnership with her husband and co-author Harry C. Solomon, her work in the Boston Psychopathic Hospital from 1916 to the 1920s, her work as co-author of the landmark "Syphilis of the Innocent: A Study of the Effects of Syphilis on the Family and the Community," her development into a teacher and the author of one of the first standard texts on psychiatric social work, and her emergence as a research leader and role model."
