Practicum Sites

WSPP utilizes the facilities of a variety of community resources for practicum placements. This list is frequently updated, allowing students to choose from a variety of clinical placements. These include hospitals, clinics, and schools where WSPP students and faculty provide consultation, individual, group and family therapy, and psychological assessment.

Students may have done practicum work in a Master’s degree program prior to admission to WSPP. Upon student request, these hours will be evaluated by the Practicum and Internship Committee and if they meet relevant criteria, may be credited toward required WSPP practicum training. In no case, however, will more than 400 previously completed practicum hours be credited toward WSPP requirements.
