Fixed effects regression methods are sometimes used with longitudinal data to control for unmeasured and/or stable characteristics of individuals. In a HLM framework, this tends to be done by including a series of dummy coded variables to represent each subject (with one subject serving as the reference person) in the model. Can this approach or a similar approach be implemented in mplus?

Yes, this should be possible. I have never actually done this however.
