Wilson M. Van Dusen (September 11, 1923 - April 25, 2005) was an American clinical psychologist and Swedenborgian. During his time working at the Mendocino State Hospital, Van Dusen developed an experimental therapeutic method that involved his dialoguing with hallucinatory voices that were heard by his patients, with the patients acting as a mediator relating the therapist's words, and came to think these seeming hallucinations should be treated as separate, albeit discarnate, beings from his patients, taking inspiration from Swedenborg.
