The mission of the Institute for Marital Healing is to strengthen Catholic marriages and families by educating spouses, marital therapists and clergy about common causes of conflicts in marital self-giving and effective approaches to alleviating such conflicts. Through a combination of online resources, educational programs and publications, the Institute employs a time-tested approach to marital therapy that recognizes the importance of both science and faith in the process of marital healing.  We provide an empirically proven approach for resolving marital anger, the most common conflict which leads couples to seek marriage counseling.

Dr. Richard Wetzel's Sexual Wisdom Home Page
Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents is the best handbook for Catholic parents, Catholic teachers, Catholic priests, Catholic bishops, and mature adolescents that I have ever read. Everything that any parent needs to know, in order to lovingly impart Catholic teaching on questions dealing with human sexuality, is contained in this volume. The glossary, the index, and the test questions, not to mention the certification and appendices all add to the useful nature of this volume and are the frosting on the scrumptious cake! Anyone who is truly committed to raising a child in the way of the Lord, even among those who are not Catholic, should be praising God for Dr. Wetzel’s effort. This volume is incredibly well-written and inspired. Of that there is no doubt.”
- Judie Brown, Founder and president of the American Life League
