What does LCSW stand for?
Big cats and marine mammals sounds rather off the beaten track! So far it sounds like I'll have to do some serious convincing if I want to research EAP here at UoA, that or arrange to have a supervisor via correspondence.
What sort of therapies are you looking at? I'm especially interested in communication skills, but also the benefits of assisting in rehabilitation of animals in crisis situations for people dealing with depression.
How will your eventual social work qualifications differ from what you can do with a Clinical Doctorate? It is similar but more community-based?
It is managed via diet, and also with medication. I've been avoiding medicating her because Peroglide (the drug normally prescribed) has side-effects of depression and anorexia... I've seen her depressed and never want to again!
I supplement her with chaste tree berry extract for pituitary support, and tonnes of garlic for her immune system, which cushings compromises.
Keeping them in a quiet, stress-free environment helps too.
So far it's been working and she's even started shedding properly for the first time in almost 2 years. That was a rather exciting moment ^_^
