Expert's Profile

David Arredondo, MD is a medical doctor (graduate of Harvard Medical School and Harvard College), forensic psychiatrist and the Director of the Office of Child Development, a forensic and technical assistance organization affiliated with the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. He is the founding director of Applied Neuroscience, which conducts research reviews on a broad range of topics. He was recently the principal expert witness for the ACLU in a major federal impact litigation covered in detail in the The New Yorker. He works as a consultant for both for Defendants and Plaintiffs in equal measure. His integrity is unimpeachable. He provides consultations and training to professionals and programs nationally. His primary focus is the transferring of knowledge of brain structure and function in terms that the non-expert can understand. Dr. Arredondo has published and lectured extensively on the causes of disordered behavior and including impaired impulse control, post traumatic reactions, sexual abuse, personality disorders, malingering, subtle learning impairments and impaired decision-making. In particular, Dr. Arredondo is an expert on brain system dysfunction or psychological issues or disorders that may account for abnormal behavior; gauging the contribution of that cause to an individual's emotional, vocational, family, and interpersonal adjustment; and the subject of distress, mental anguish and emotional suffering. He is adept at formulating multidisciplinary foundations for clinical logic, which rigorously infers neuropathology and its causal relation to thinking patterns that can explain aberrant behaviors or diminished competence. Dr. Arredondo is a former member of the clinical faculty of the Stanford University School of Medicine. He is a graduate of Harvard College (1975) and Harvard Medical School (1980) and a Diplomate of the American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry.
