Enuresis and Anatomic Factors In cases of primary enuresis, anatomic abnormalities are not usually found. These approaches have typically been of the operant variety where the child is positively reinforced for setting on the commode and for defecating, for having clean underpants, and where mild punishment may be used with soiling. Etiology Behaviorally oriented psychologists have emphasized faulty learning experiences perhaps compounded by stressful approaches to toilet training in the development of enuresis.

At least one event a month for at least 3 months.

The rationale for this approach is that if the bell, which results in the child waking up, can be paired over time with the sensations associated with a distended bladder, the child due to classical conditioning will come to awaken and inhibit urination in response to these sensations.

Contributors to Encopresis The discontinuous type has been seen as more likely a result of rigid and stress inducing approaches to training. There is some evidence that children with nocturnal enuresis may have a deficiency in ADH and thus excrete significantly higher volumes of urine during sleep than children without enuresis. Encopreesis Treatments The most common behavioral treatment is the bell and pad approach.


In these instances, surgical relief of the obstruction by tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy or both has been reported to diminish nocturnal enuresis in up to 76 percent of patients who display this condition.

Bell and Pad Treatment The bell and pad method has been found to be quite effective in dealing with bed wetting, with success rates of from 70 to 90 percent being reported.

The assumption here, is that the overly casual approach to toileting may result in the child failing to learn appropriate toileting skills as well as having little motivation to be trained.

Findings from some studies, however, have suggested that functional bladder capacity may be reduced in patients with nocturnal enuresis. In some instances these procedures have been supplemented by the use of suppositories to stimulate bowel enureeis which can then be rewarded.

The most common distinctions in addition to those in DSM IVare Between the continuous type analogous to primary enuresis where the child has never become toilet trained, and The discontinuous type analogous to secondary enuresis where enuresiz child has initially been toilet trained and has subsequently become incontinent.

Soiling may occur as the anal sphincter the muscle at the end of the digestive tract loses its strength and feces usually in liquid form leaks around the impacted stool and is gradually expelled without the child’s awareness.

Effectiveness of Traditional Psychotherapy Some attempts have been made to assess the effectiveness of traditional psychotherapy in enuresis.

Immaturity in motor and language development has also been implicated although the specific mechanisms have not been determined. While some parents report a small bladder capacity in children with enuresis, this condition usually is accompanied by daytime symptoms.
