Dr. Louise Stanger (writer, speaker, educator, clinician, and International Interventionist) is pleased to announce the release of her newest book Falling Up: A Memoir of Renewal. Born into a tipsy-turvy world fraught with family issues, Louise shares personal stories infused with that spark of human experience we all collectively share – hope.
Readers will follow Louise from awkward little girl to fearless adult; through family tragedies and triumphs as well as mental health challenges, including substance abuse disorder. Falling Up: A Memoir of Renewal challenges the reader to reflect on their own story as they witness the power that comes with the decision to get back up again. We all fall down, but with strength and courageous action, life takes you back up – because life is full of moments that make you feel like you’re falling.
The memoir provides readers with a road map for their own renewal, and is a must-read for behavioral healthcare professionals and those who have experienced the trials and tribulations of family issues.
Dr. Louise Stanger is a highly sought-after interventionist, as well as lecturer, professor, clinician, and trainer. She is a published author and her work has been featured in the Huffington Post, Journal of Alcohol Studies, Recovery View, Sober Way, and various other magazines and scholarly publications. In addition, the San Diego Business Journal listed her as one of the top 10 “Women who Mean Business” and she was ranked as one of the top 10 Interventionists in the Country. She has served as faculty at San Diego State University School of Social Work and SDSU Interwork Institute as well as been the Director of Alcohol and other Drug Services at the University of San Diego.
