Allan S. Mohl is a licensed clinical social worker who has worked in private practice since 1966 and has had diversified agency experience since 1960. He became involved in his profession after gaining experience as a social work specialist in the United States Army. He started out in the field employed at Brooklyn After Care Clinic, treating patients who were released from The Central Islip State Hospital (which is now closed). He then worked for two years as a case worker at The Children’s Village, a residential treatment school. Subsequently, he was a case worker at Jewish Family Services from October 1963 to September 1967. From 1984 to 2002, he served on the Special Education Committee of the New York City Board of Education. An important highlight – and turning point – in his career occurred from 1980 to 1984, when he was able to develop and obtain funding for a family unit in a community-based agency. As well, during his time as a volunteer at White Plains Hospital Center, Dr. Mohl was responsible for the development of a humor cart program.
As a school social worker, Dr. Mohl counseled students of New York City Schools. His philosophy is that every day is a gift. “As long as you are alive, enjoy the moment,” he advises. Dr. Mohl has published four books of poetry, including his most recent book, entitled “Autumn Leaves at Twilight.” His greatest career achievement was receiving a certificate for his numerous years of dedication to helping students at New York City Public School 206 and JHS 190.
Dr. Mohl received a Ph.D. in health and human services in 1991 from Columbia Pacific University. He earned a master of social services in 1960, a master of arts in sociology in 1956 and a bachelor of arts in sociology in 1954 from New York University. Continue reading
