Timothy R. Elliott, Ph.D., ABPP, is a Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology in the College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University. He holds a joint faculty appointment with the School of Public Health at the Texas A&M Health Sciences Center. He is a licensed psychologist and holds board certification (ABPP) in rehabilitation psychology.

His research has examined adjustment processes among persons living with chronic and disabling health conditions, with particular emphasis on the role of social problem-solving abilities and other factors that predict adjustment following disability. This work has resulted in over 200 professional publications and federal grant funding for over 15 years (including support for five randomized clinical trials). His research team pioneered the use of long-distance technologies in providing problem solving training to family caregivers of persons with acquired disabilities, including the first randomized clinical trials of a psychological intervention for family caregivers of persons with spinal cord injuries, and for family caregivers of persons with traumatic brain injuries. In 2006, he was featured in the instructional DVD entitled, Caregiving, as part of the Psychotherapy Video/DVD Series on Relationships published by American Psychological Association.

Elliott is a member of the Defense Health Board’s Neurological/Behavioral Health subcommittee that advises on psychological/mental health issues and neurological symptoms and conditions among service members and their families. He was a member of the Presidential Caregiver Task Force for the American Psychological Association. He served as Editor for Rehabilitation Psychology (2006-2011); currently, he is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Clinical Psychology. He is the Executive Director of the Telehealth Counseling Clinic at the Texas A&M Health Science Center that provides mental health services to clients in five underserved counties in the Brazos Valley of Texas (http://telehealthcounseling.org/). He is a recipient of several awards and honors and in 2015 received the Mitch Rosenthal Lectureship and Award from the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology (within the APA) for lifetime mentorship.
