Kenneth C. Elliott, Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology br>
Hello. You've arrived at my webpage. Thanks for your interest or curiosity. My name is Ken Elliott. To some I'm know as Dr. K. I am a person, a practicing Buddhist, a man, a clinical psychologist (licensed in the state of Maine) and a member of the faculty at the University of Maine at Augusta.
Faculty members have essentially four kinds of responsibilities; teaching, research/scholarship, service to the community and service to the university. As a member of the College of Natural and Social Sciences, I teach a variety of (undergraduate) courses ranging from introductory courses (to psychology and to the social sciences) to upper level courses in research methods, gender studies and cross cultural studies.
I was born in 1946 in Hollywood, California. My family's histories reflect my Yugoslavian and Scottish roots. I have lived in Japan and Canada and been fortunate enough to travel far and wide. I moved to Maine from Canada in 1987. I've been settling as a member of a very small town in the woods (Mount Vernon) ever since. My family of origin remains in California as they have for four generations. I live alone but by no means a solitary life. I received my BA from Wesleyan University in Connecticut majoring in Asian Sociology. After serving in the Peace Corps (Sri Lanka) I completed my Masters Degree (in psychology) at the New School for Social Research in New York City. I then moved back to California where I completed my Ph.D. (in C. Psych.) at Alliance University in San Diego.
