On this Compendium Podcast, our host Michael Stickler interviews Norm Wielsch, author of Your Christ Centered Healing of Trauma. This book teaches the foundational principles and tools for dealing with issues related to overwhelming life events. You will learn about how trauma affects the heart and body.
Norm Wielsch was a law enforcement officer for over 25 years. For sixteen of those years, he was an undercover narcotics agent. He experienced many critical incidents during his career. In 1998, he was diagnosed with PTSD and an incurable neuromuscular disease that caused loss of feeling, mobility, and strength in his hands and feet. After 30 surgeries he became addicted to opioids. Due to sinful and illegal responses to his PTSD, Norm landed in federal prison. It was there he answered God’s call to minister to people suffering from trauma. While in prison, he obtained a Master of Theology, a Doctorate in Christian Counseling, and a Drug & Alcohol Counseling Certification. Norm counseled inmates, preached God’s Word, and taught bible studies. Many inmates experienced God’s healing power and were transformed through the biblical principles taught through Christ-Centered Healing.
Norm now serves as an expert in PTSD, the first responder culture, and speaks all around the world.
