NEUROBEHAVIORAL THERAPIST

Lonny at workLonny is a leader and expert who helps people change the tough behaviors with which they struggle. In his career of over 20 years, he has demonstrated his place at the crosshairs of effectiveness and compassion.  He is frequently asked to speak to professionals and organizations and on current issues and trends in the field of clinical psychology and social work.

As a father of three kids ranging from 16 to 6 in age, Lonny has learned the difficulty that comes with parenting and the appreciation of a style of approach necessary to work effectively with families and kids. Lonny also has researched and produced many professional publications in the field of behavior change including publications regarding developmental trauma, serious behavior challenges, and self-injury.

Lonny worked for the Idaho StateSchool and Hospital as an “Psychologist Assistant”, a Psychological Associate at the Oregon State Penitentiary and finally for the Oregon Department of Corrections as the Counseling and Treatment Services, Manager of Behavioral Services.  Lonny has degrees in Psychology and Social Work.

Currently, Lonny is focused on mixing the “hard science” of neurology with an empathetic, consumable psychotherapy and his own direct, “this may sting a little” approach. This results in families, individuals and even organizations with a better understanding of the neurological underpinnings of their mind, and the tools to change behavior.

 

The MindWorks© Series: Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Alcohol Related Neurodevelopmental Disorders 

People who were exposed to alcohol or other substances  in utero were formed in a toxic soup that can cause birth defects, some cases are diagnosed as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) while more mild cases may be diagnoses Alcohol Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder (ARND). Theeffects of these disorders are life long but do change with age. The National Institute of Health reports:

Toddlers with FAS may be:

  • hyperactive;
  • unable to follow simple instructions;
  • much too friendly, even to strangers; and
  • delayed in their development.

FAS in school-aged children may lead to:

  • learning difficulties, including problems reading;
  • difficulty paying attention;
  • behavior problems in the classroom; and
  •  falling behind in school.

Some of the problems that teenagers or adults with FAS experience are:

  • mental health problems;
  •  inappropriate sexual behavior;
  • bad experiences in school;
  •  trouble with the law; and drug or alcohol abuse.

 

Often we hear, "So what do I do about this, it is brain damage?"  In this seminar Lonny Webb,MSW will be presenting several 
effective, evidence based treatment strategies that he and other clinicians and researchers have found to be helpful to facilitate change in some of the most challenging cases. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what happened during fetal development and better understand what symptoms indicate these diagnoses. 
  • Better understand the strengths of individuals with FAS/ARND.
  • Understand the differences of individuals diagnosed with FAS/ARND and why that matters so much.  
  • Take away several new approaches for how you might deal with the person in your life who is diagnosed with this disorder. 
  • Learn how partnerships between schools, churches, clinics and even other parents can help.
