The Department of Art Education’s Art Therapy program in coordination with FSU’s Art Therapy Association (ATA) will host their annual spring workshop on Saturday, February 20, 2016. This year’s guest lecturer is Dr. Lisa Hinz, an Adjunct Professor of Art Therapy at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in St. Mary’s, Indiana, and the author of Drawing from Within: Using Art to Treat Eating Disorders and Expressive Therapies Continuum: A Framework for Using Art in Therapy. Lisa D. Hinz, Ph.D., ATR is a licensed clinical psychologist and registered art therapist. For over 25 years, her clinical practice has focused on the use of art therapy to help individuals with eating disorders and addictions overcome obstacles to change their lifestyle and optimize physical, mental and spiritual health.


While earning her doctorate at the Louisiana State University, Dr. Hinz was part of an active eating disorder research team.  She has also published professional articles and presented research papers on using art therapy to help people with eating disorders and addictions. Her dissertation examines the physiological correlates of the behavioral aspects of Bulimia Nervosa.


During her practice as a clinical psychologist, Dr. Hinz supervised an art therapy student and witnessed the power of art to reveal and heal. Subsequently, Dr. Hinz returned to graduate school and earned a post-doctoral certificate in art therapy at the University of Louisville. There, she had the privilege of working with Dr. Kagin and Lusebrink, originators of the Expressive Therapies Continuum (ETC). Dr. Hinz is currently working on a book which combines her interests in Health Psychology and the Expressive Therapies Continuum.  It serves as a guide to self-care and behavior change using the ETC as a construct to guide life enrichment.


With her accumulated knowledge and experience in art therapy, Dr. Hinz is expected to conduct an enlightening workshop! Registration will be from 8:30 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. in FSU’s William Johnston Building Room 3003, followed by the workshop from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Dr. Hinz will be presenting on two topics: Enhancing Client Self-Expression and Healing: Art Therapy Assessment and Treatment Guided by the Expressive Therapies Continuum and Beyond Therapist Self-Care: The Expressive Therapies Continuum as a Guide to Optimal Health. Lunch will be provided for those that attend. Additional details on this event may be found online.


Those interested in attending should RSVP by February 15th to
