A.Bailey (@gold.ac.uk)

Alexandra’s research interests are in the areas of online and offline sexual offending, and women who have offended.

I have been a Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at Goldsmiths since 2020, teaching on the MSc Forensic Psychology. I am a Registered Forensic Psychologist since 2017.

I have worked within the prison service with women who have sexually offended, and in secure hospitals with men and women with mental disorder. Alongside my teaching at Goldsmiths, I work as a practitioner for The Lucy Faithfull Foundation, a child protection charity focused on the prevention of child sexual abuse, where I deliver assessments and interventions with individuals who have (or are alleged to have) committed sexual offences, and non-offending partners and family members.
