Dr. Cherie Clark
Dr. Cherie Clark co-founder of Social Synergetics, & co-creator of a new video production “Shock Incarceration.” A leader in her field & expert in substance abuse treatment, she is principal author of “DOING LIFE!® A Life Skills Program for Recovery from Addictions” & “SMART CHOICES: A Guide for Making Choices That Work.” The prison system in the U.S. is viewed as largely dysfunctional & ineffective. Cherie says much of the prison population is young, nonviolent, often drug addicted, & who gave up on themselves at about age ten. Her goal: change lives by teaching them about choice, responsibility & self-discipline, building life skills to increase the odds of success “on the outside.” Based on Buckminster Fuller’s principles of synergetics, the renowned programs result in successful prisoner rehabilitation & prison staff effectiveness.
