From the webmistress:

I met Dr. Young 25 years ago at a series of lectures he gave at UC Santa Barbara on Jung, Hillman, and The Wizard of OZ. I later created this website as part of my internship at Cal State Northridge and have maintained it ever since. With well over a hundred pages of information, tools, and resources, is a formidable resource. We have recently transitioned to a responsive design that is mobile-friendly. Some thing may have broken and I'm checking for those. Until that's all polished up, do use the Search tool and if you have a moment, let us know.
