ABOUT
DR. LAREAU
Craig R. Lareau, J.D., Ph.D., ABPP, has worked in the field of mental health for over 23 years. A psychology major at Yale, he is a graduate of the Joint J.D./Ph.D. Program in Law & Psychology from Villanova University School of Law and Drexel University Graduate School. Following his law and psychology studies in Pennsylvania, he completed a predoctoral internship in clinical psychology at Patton State Hospital in San Bernardino County, California.

He remained at Patton to attend the highly-respected Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Forensic Psychology, one of a handful of such programs nationally. Upon completion of the fellowship program, Dr. Lareau became the hospital's Forensic Psychology Consultant, performing complex forensic psychological evaluations on some of the hospital's most challenging cases.

After becoming licensed in psychology in 2001, Dr. Lareau opened an independent practice in forensic evaluations and litigation consulting. In 2003, he became one of a select few psychologist/attorneys to become board-certified in forensic psychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology.

He has continued his work with Patton State Hospital, now serving as Director of Forensic Psychology Training in the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program with responsibilities as the primary instructor and supervisor in forensic psychology, and as a consultant in the Forensic Evaluation Department.

Dr. Lareau was the 2012 President of the California Psychological Association. He has been involved in psychology leadership roles through the California Psychological Association for many years. He has served twice as the Chair of the Division of Clinical and Professional Practice (i.e., the private practice division), and since 2006 he has been Chair of the Forensic Psychology Section. Dr. Lareau also recently served as a member of the Committee on Legal Issues (COLI) for the American Psychological Association, and he is Head of the Law Board for the Association for Scientfic Advancement in Psychological Injury and Law (ASAPIL).
