Current and Recent  Work Activities:  


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 across life spans over many years of clinical practice (e.g.,  inpatient psychiatric facilitates, community mental health centers, outpatient practice, special education programs,  nursing homes, etc.)  The Mind Stimulation Therapy model was further refined and developed in his long-time years of  collaborative work with Professor Boisvert, who was a former student-extern for six years at NRI Community Services, and with whom Dr. Ahmed has been involved  in various aspects of mind stimulation related publications.

Article in Print: Mohiuddin Ahmed, Ph.D. Computer-facilitated Therapeutic Dialogue with Adolescents with "Behavior Disorders" Adolescent Psychiatry, manuscript accepted for publication in September 2016. (This article highlights the use of a Goal Development Protocol and advocates for its use not only with adolescents, but also with various other clinical populations by diverse practicing clinicians, including medication prescribers, and for its use in non-clinical situations such as  conflict mediations, supervisor-supervisee interactions, organizational program development objectives, etc.)

Dr. Ahmed also enabled posthumous publications of Jay D. Paul, who left some of his writings with Dr. Ahmed before he passed away,(in consultation with Jay D. Paul's parents). Dr. Ahmed used elements of Mind Stimulation Therapy Model, specifically computer facilitated collaborative therapy dialogue with Paul.  See footnotes to his two  articles published in Schizophrenia Bulletin:
