Gupta, Sumati
Intro to Clinical

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

You can definitely tell that she is a new professor, but she tries really really hard. She is a super nice woman, who really cares about her students. Her class was a little bit surface oriented at times, but got way better as the semester went on. Overall, a great addition to the Barnard psychology department. She is a great resource when it comes to questions about clinical psychology. She is just caring in general and it was a pleasure going to her class everyday.

Rafaeli, Eshkol Silver_nugget
Intro to Clinical

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Rafaeli lectures may be a bit dry, but his ability to stimulate discussion makes up for it. Although the topic lends itself to interesting theoretical questions, he really encourages participation and debate. There tend to be a lot of weirdos in the class who sometimes dominate the conversation with their incessant need to express every opinion they ever had, but they can be entertaining in their own way. I highly recommend the class for anyone interested in therapy and clinical psych. Rafaeli is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and presents thought-provoking material. It's certainly possible to do well without coming to class, but Rafaeli and all the entertaining opinionated weirdos make the class entertaining and worth attending.

Workload:

Completely manageable. There's an average amount of reading which is mostly interesting. There are three small assignments that are interesting and fun. There are two exams and a final, but he allows a cheat sheet for each exam. He's also a reasonable (even generous) grader.
