PUBLICATIONS OF MOHIUIDDIN AHMED

Dr. Ahmed recently published a book in collaboration with Professor Charles Boisvert of Rhode Island College on a psychotherapy model, called Mind Stimulation Therapy. He pioneered this model of psychotherapy for challenging mental health populations over many years of clinical practice (working in a state psychiatric facility, two community mental health centers, and two nursing homes). The MST model was further refined and developed in his long-time collaborative work with Professor Boisvert, who was his former student-extern for six years at NRI Community Services.
