American psychologist, author and editor Dr. James Hillman, former director of the Jung Institute in Zurich, lectured on "The Archetypical Child in the Myth of the American Family."  The editor of Spring, an international journal of Jungian thought, and a visiting lecturer at Yale, Dr. Hillman appeared as part of the Changing American Culture Program's series, "Issues for the Seventies: The American Family in Crisis."

A self-identified "renegade psychologist" and the founder of "archetypal psychology"—sometimes referred to as "imaginal psychology—Hillman proposed in such works as Re-Visioning Psychology (1975)—based on his 1972 Yale Terry Lectures—to discover the guiding fictions of traditional psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
