In the tradition of such beloved spiritual teachers as Francis MacNutt and Michael Scanlan, Be Healed: A Guide to Encountering the Powerful Love of Jesus in Your Lifeoffers in book form Bob Schuchts’s popular program for spiritual, emotional, and physical healing through the power of the Holy Spirit and the sacraments.
This renowned program for spiritual restoration is steeped in scripture and the wisdom of the Catholic Church. Deeply intimate and vulnerable about his own journey of healing, Catholic therapist Bob Schuchts connects with his readers by sharing his own story—as a young boy he endured sexual abuse and subsequently wrestled with doubt about God and faith.
Be Healed is based on the program first used in dioceses across the United States to form the hearts and minds of Catholic clergy. Schuchts’s trusted process for finding inner peace and healing is now expanded to serve the entire body of Christ, helping people recognize their brokenness and find hope in the risen Christ.
Bob Schuchts is a licensed marriage and family therapist who has integrated his Catholic faith and the charism of healing into his therapy practice and teaching/training activities for more than thirty-five years. After receiving his doctorate in family relations from Florida State University in 1981, Schuchts began teaching and counseling. He has taught graduate and undergraduate courses in marriage and family relationships, human development, applied psychology, and marriage and family therapy at Florida State University and Tallahassee Community College. He later served on faculty at the Theology of the Body Institute in Pennsylvania, and the Center for Biblical Studies in Tallahassee, Florida, where he taught courses on healing, sexuality, and marriage.
Schuchts is the founder and president of the John Paul II Healing Center in Tallahassee, Florida, where he and his team offer healing and training conferences for many audiences including priests, seminarians, religious, married people, and lay people of all ages and stages of life. Among the most frequently attended are “Healing the Whole Person,” (a healing conference) “Unveiled” (a marriage retreat) and “Holy Desire,” a conference he offers in seminaries. Schuchts and his wife Margie have been married for thirty-seven years and have two married daughters and seven grandchildren. They live in Tallahassee, Florida.
