The aim of this historical survey is to present a well organized statement of the activities of the play therapy clinic at the College of the Pacific and to analyze and evaluate the findings . One year after the origin of the clinic , there was felt the need for a survey. The writer has had many opportunities to observe the functions and the operation of the clinic, and he has felt that the activities and objectives of the clinic should be defined clearly in writing so that the beginning students at the clinic may have a more adequate approach to the clinical situation. Each semester, the psychology department admits more newer students who are majoring in the field. It is the writer's hope that this survey might add to the effectiveness of the training program in play therapy and that the new students might use this survey to their advantage, and perhaps it might shorten the time for them in comprehending the clinical activities and in understanding its functions.

It is not the intention of the writer to solve all the problems of the clinic, but it is his interest to point out the various problems in the clinical situation for further study. The writer also feels that the data obtained from this survey would be valuable to the clinic for its self-appraisal. This survey will also have a practical value to the College of the Pacific and to the students who are majoring in psychology who are contemplating taking the course in play therapy, and also to those who want to know something about the nature of the program.
