TRACYS KIDS INC
March 4, 2013

As an art therapist, I have always been impressed and inspired by Tracy's Kids. The music video put together by the some of the children they serve moved me to tears of joy because it so beautifully conveys the resiliency they cultivate in the children they work with. Being active in the art therapy community, I always was aware of Tracy's Kids does, but the video on youtube -- http://youtu.be/I91AVXNsb1c -- brings the message home even more clearly. This program deserves our recognition and gratitude for what they bring to the children and families they work with and for what they bring to the field. Art therapist Tracy Councill, who founded this program, was also recently interviewed for the BBC News Magazine online series, "The Power of Art" (dated Februray 27, 2013). In this interview she talks about the program and also about research into the benefits af art therapy with children. (More can be found about research on the website of the American Art Therapy Association.) So, a big Kudos to Tracy Councill and Tracy's Kids, not only for the high quality work they do in helping medically ill children and supprting their families, but also for bringing to the eyes of the public this much needed programming. We need many more programs like Tracy's Kids everywhere. There are some other good ones out there, but not nearly enough.
