I stumbled across this article written by RagdollTherian and had to share it here. Coping with and Control of Therianthropy is a very practical list of suggestions and techniques for dealing with control issues as an animal-person.
Several of the approaches are similar to my own hard-learned methods for dealing with my birdness, as described in Balancing Feathers and Pinions. But RagdollTherian also makes suggestions I’d never imagined, such as mantras, engaging in play with toys meant for pets, and improving reflex control by training in a martial art or other such discipline (the last of which was a contribution from Sephiroth-ac).
I’m excited to see someone else writing about this!
