DOBBS FERRY, NY, April 22, 2014, Worldwide Who's Who -- "I was in the Army from '56 to '58 and the active reserve from '58 to '60. I think it really helped to focus my mind on the fact that I wanted to be a social worker. It was my experience as a medical social worker at Letterman Army Hospital, and then as a psychiatric social work specialist at Madigan, which convinced me that [social work was] the field that I wanted to go into." So noted Dr. Allan S. Mohl in a recent sit-down interview with Worldwide Who's Who Publishing. Like many men and women who indentify their career path while serving in the military, Dr. Mohl was inspired by his experiences in the service to pursue a vocation in social services. Already armed with a baccalaureate degree in sociology and a master's degree in sociology from New York University, earned in 1954 and 1956, respectively, Dr. Mohl went on to earn a Master of Social Work in 1960 and finally a Ph.D. in health and human services in February of 1991 from Columbia Pacific University, School of Health and Human Services.

Since 1966, Dr. Mohl has worked as a licensed clinical social worker in private practice. He worked for a stint at the Brooklyn After Care Clinic, where he treated patients who were released from The Central Islip State Hospital. He then worked for two years as a case worker at The Children's Village, a residential treatment school, and served as a case worker for Jewish Family Services from October 1963 to September 1967. Dr. Mohl was also involved with a federally funded anti-poverty program in the South Bronx called Project ENABLE. Its purpose, as he recalled it, was to empower people to improve their community and become more politically active. From October 1965 through June 1970, he served as a casework supervisor at Daughters of Jacob Geriatric Center. There, he was instrumental in developing and implementing a stimuli therapy program for senescent patients.

Dr. Mohl returned to The Children's Village in September 1970, as a supervisor, and in October 1971, he became a unit director. Subsequently, from October 1977, he was appointed director of residential social services at the Queensboro Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (QSPCC), and supervised an incest treatment unit from September 1979 to September 1980. Through the years 1980 to 1984, Dr. Mohl developed a family unit at a community based agency known as the Tremont Improvement Project Neighborhood House in the South Bronx.

From 1984 to 2002, he served on the Special Education Committee of the New York City Board of Education. Said Dr. Mohl of the experience, "Having worked for the Board of Ed., I view myself as a specialist in working with children." As a school social worker, he counseled students of New York City Schools. The experience earned him a certificate for his numerous years of dedication to helping students at New York City Public School 206 and JHS 190.

An important career highlight - and turning point - in Dr. Mohl's career occurred from 1980 to 1984, when he obtained funding for and developed a family unit in a community-based agency. During his tenure as a volunteer at White Plains Hospital Center, he was responsible for the development of a humor cart program, which involved various films and comedians as part of a larger effort to rehabilitate patients. Dr. Mohl's responsibilities as a social worker, although clinically complex, are quite simple by definition. "My responsibilities revolve around trying to help patients to improve their conditions - their emotional conditions, their life conditions - to try to reach them and understand where they're at. I try to be ethical and professional, as best as I can be," he noted, humbly. Currently the president of the International Psychohistorical Association, Dr. Mohl has written a number of articles for professional journals and scholarly publications.

A recognized expert in individual, marriage and family therapy, Dr. Mohl has been honored with a myriad of honorable titles and awards. These include, but are not limited to, the American Biographical Institute's American Civil Liberties Union International Peace Prize, awarded to him in 2005, membership in Marquis Who's Who in the East, Marquis Who's Who in America, Marquis Who's Who in the World, Marquis Who's Who Among Human Service Professionals, Marquis Who's Who in Medicine and Health Care, Contemporary Who's Who of Professionals and America's Registry of Outstanding Professionals, a Certificate of Appreciation from the New York Disaster Counseling Coalition and the Westchester Jewish Community Service Award. Most recently, Dr. Mohl was selected for inclusion in "Worldwide Publishing's Top 101 Industry Experts" book. The Top Industry Experts reveal the objectives and triumphs prominent Worldwide members have achieved to gain success. Selected from more than 400,000 executives, professionals and entrepreneurs, these exemplary leaders stay at the top of their fields by possessing unique experience and wisdom, all the while exhibiting innovation in their work.

His professional contributions to social work aside, Dr. Mohl has published four books of poetry, including his most recent book, entitled "Autumn Leaves at Twilight." When he's not working, writing or lecturing, Dr. Mohl enjoys playing the piano and spending time with his five grandchildren: Ray, Gillon, Julia, Aaron and Ryan. He stresses that every day is a gift and encourages others to embrace each opportunity with which they are afforded. "Make the most of each day, because you never know," he said. "Live as fully as you can, one day at a time - that's my motto."
