I had a chance to speak with Dr. Bob Schuchts recently. Dr. Schuchts is a licensed marriage and family therapist who has integrated his Catholic faith and a charism of healing into his therapy, practice, and teaching for over three decades.

He is the founder of the John Paul II Healing Center, which offers conferences all over the country to help priests, seminarians, religious and lay people of all ages and stages of life to find healing in our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church.

Dr. Schuchts has undergraduate degree from Columbia University and a masters and doctoral degree in Family Relations from Florida State University. He has taught on the faculty of several universities and also at the Theology of the Body Institute and the Center for Biblical Studies.

He’s been a guiding influence for the establishment of Fraternus, a parish-based Catholic movement that’s focused on helping mentor boys to become virtuous Catholic men.

Dr. Schuchts also has a new book coming out called “Be Healed: A Guide to Encountering the Powerful Love of Jesus in Your Life,” which you can find on amazon.com.

To learn more about Dr. Schuchts’ work or to invite him to speak at your parish or conference, please visit the John Paul II Healing Center at jpiihealingcenter.org.

Here is the audio of the discussion and the transcript.
