Alison received her BA in women’s studies and social anthropology from Harvard University and her MA in anthropology from Princeton University, with a focus in psychological and psychoanalytic anthropology. She subsequently undertook clinical training at the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis, and is a licensed psychoanalyst in New York State. She joined Dr. Gould’s research group in 2008, bringing an interest in qualitative and mixed methods research. As a project director on the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Evaluation, she oversaw the evaluation of the first cohort of SAMHSA’s crisis-center follow-up grantees, and now focuses on the evaluation of crisis chat interventions, the imminent-risk evaluation, and the hospital data collection aspect of the ED follow-up evaluation.
