    As a clinical researcher, Dr. Gaston collaborated with many colleagues in diverse settings. She has carried out two clinical trials. Her main research topic was the alliance in psychotherapy and its interaction with techniques as they contribute to better outcomes. In collaboration with Dr. Marmar, M.D., she has developed the California Psychotherapy Alliance Scale, CALPAS, a measure of the alliance in psychotherapy which is worldly used.

    In 1988, Dr. Gaston completed a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship in PTSD and psychotherapy research, at the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute, University of California, San Francisco, under the supervision of Dr. Horowitz, M.D., author of Stress Response Syndrome, and Dr. Marmar, M.D., both ex-presidents of the International Society for Psychotherapy Research and the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.

    EBAA Eye Bank Accreditation, established in 1981, demonstrates that an eye bank is operating in compliance with the EBAA Medical Standards and ensures that safe, quality ocular tissue is being used for transplant.

Being prepared for an inspection is key, as any significant findings during the inspection could cost an eye bank to lose its accreditation or to receive a 1 year accreditation status.
