MELBOURNE, FLA.—Richard T. Elmore, Ph.D., Florida Tech associate professor and director of clinical training, was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Florida Society of Clinical Hypnosis (FSCH). A former FSCH board member and Fellow of the organization, he has taught a hypnosis course at the university for more than 26 years.
The award cites Elmore as an inspiration to a generation of students, notable for his service to veterans, contributor to the clinical knowledge base and a compassionate healer.
In 1991, Elmore established the Center for Traumatology Studies within the School of Psychology, which has provided counseling, education, research and consultation services on combat readjustment issues. His research has produced dozens of papers presented at annual meetings of the Southeastern Psychological Association and American Psychological Association.
Elmore and dozens of clinical psychology doctoral students, over the years, have worked to benefit Brevard County and the many combat veterans who live in the county.
