GRADDOWENSBORO, Ky. (4/8/16) — As part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, the GRADD Community Collaboration for Children (CCC) Regional Network and Sunrise Children’s Services will present “Moments with Micah,” a free motivational behavior intervention workshop.

This free training for parents, grandparents raising grandchildren, care providers, and professionals will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Thursday, April 28, at the Logsdon Community Center (2400 Friendship Drive, Owensboro).

The workshop will be led by child and family counselor Dr. T. James Kimble, LCPC/DCC. Dr. Kimble and his wife Liz are the founders of Joshua’s Friends for Exceptional Families, Inc., a nonprofit agency based in Hardin County, Kentucky that seeks to empower families to live beyond disabilities and challenging life issues.

All attendees will receive a complimentary lunch, a completion certificate, and a chance to win door prizes.

“Dr. Kimble’s training method has proven successful in extinguishing difficult behavior in a wide range of children—from strong-willed kids to those with developmental disabilities,” said Kristy Clark, GRADD CCC Coordinator. “The ‘Moments with Micah’ method is designed to teach basic and advanced behavioral intervention techniques in a very user friendly-format.”

This workshop is funded through federal and state funds, including the Kentucky Cabinet for Health & Family Services.

The primary focus of the CCC Regional Network is to identify risk factors for child abuse/neglect and to combat these factors through community education and support.

Sunrise Children’s Services is a nonprofit agency providing foster care, residential, therapeutic treatment, and community-based services across the Commonwealth. For more information about this event, visit

Seating is limited, so please RSVP to Libby Watson at (270) 926-4433 by April 21.
