About the Presenter:
The Fates called Carla from Hawaii to a U.C.S.F. child psychiatric nursing Master’s program with a focus on play therapy in 1972. The Build a House Technique occurred to her one day in 1985 while meeting with a young family of two pre-school aged children whose parents insisted on their sitting still during a family session. Carla became the first RPT-S in the state of Hawaii in 1992. In 1995, with help from Anita Trubitt and several others, she founded H.A.P.T.. Carla is now studying to become a professional astrologer.

  1. The attendees will understand the importance of assessing the entire family as part of the play therapy assessment phase.
