    76. Trevor Romain: Healing kids with art

    For more than 30 years, Trevor Romain has been entertaining, educating, and inspiring both children and adults with his best-selling books, award-winning animation series, as a keynote speaker, and an incredible storyteller. Being South African born and American by choice, Trevor has written over 50 books that have sold more than a million copies worldwide and published in 24 different languages. Thousands of educators have used Trevor’s materials to help kids that are facing some difficult situations such as bullying, divorce, deployment, grief/trauma, homework to name a few. As the Washington Post has said, “His rapport with kids is a stunning thing to watch.” He has traveled to schools, hospitals, orphanages, refugee camps, and military bases worldwide, delivering his unique heartfelt self-messages of resilience, compassion and the ability for kids to safely express themselves.

    Through Trevor’s humanitarian efforts, he has spent years working with terminally ill children, having served on the board of The American Childhood Cancer Organization and worked closely with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, UNICEF, The Boys and Girls Club, and the USO. He also developed educational materials for the United Nations for children living in armed-conflict areas. He visited and worked with former child soldiers in the Congo, Burundi, Rwanda, and Uganda. Since 2007, Trevor is also the co-founder of 501(c)(3) national non-profit the Comfort Crew for Military Kids and serves as President of the Trevor Romain Company.

    He has spoken to over 1 million kids in 16 countries on his popular With You All the Way! Tour, helping children deal with the problems they face on a daily basis, including the deployment of a parent, wounded parents of visible and invisible injuries, and coping with the loss of a loved one. Trevor has also served as a keynote speaker at numerous conferences and summits including: National Child Traumatic Stress Network Conference, Innovative Counseling Strategies Conference, Innovative Schools Summit, Wounded Warrior Conference, and most recently ACM SIGGRAPH’s Virtual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit.

    In his spare time, Trevor enjoys working out, writing, illustrating, and podcasting with a nice cup of tea. However, he will always be committed to work with kids and adults to become happier, healthier and more confident.

Debikayo ,

A great podcast that is always evolving

I really enjoy Danny’s podcast. It is always thoughtful, usually wry and witty and always entertaining. All the different guests and guest hosts have been enjoyable to listen to, Danny has a real ease with them. His reflections on art, art-making, the inner critic monkey that keeps you from making art, art supplies, and on and on are a great way to examine your art habit, or why you are avoiding it. Great job on the newest format this season. It was fun!
