This month’s feature is about a dog called Shirelle. Or at least it is in principle. The truth is that it is about a dear, wise, friend of mine, Doug Green. Doug is a psychotherapist who specializes in working with childhood issues. There is a lot that is special about Doug, but what is really unique to Doug, is his love of animals, and the way he incorporates them into his work.

So the story is about his dog Shirelle and what Shirelle taught him about life, love, loss, communication and healing. It’s about what Doug has done with that knowledge and how ‘Shirelle’ has gone on to change the lives of tens of thousands of kids and young people around the world, even after death. Read the entire story with other good articles in this August edition. All crafted to help people with their WorkLife.
