Master’s Level Practicum and Field Placements

Washburn Center is committed to helping interns gain professional development and a solid foundation of clinical knowledge. We offer practicums and field placements for graduate students studying counseling, education, psychology, marriage and family therapy or social work.

Our field placements offer training experiences in individual, family and/or group therapy, as well as case management. Services may be center-based, home-based or school-based. While most placements are based out of Washburn Center’s Minneapolis office, there are several Outpatient practicum placements available at the Edina and Brooklyn Park offices and at schools in the metro area.

In addition to case consultations and in-service workshops, additional learning opportunities for master’s level internships include: diagnostic assessments, case management, development of treatment plans, progress notes and discharge summaries.

Internships are typically a nine to twelve month long experience. No J-term opportunities are available.
