Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: The 15th volume in the Advances in Psychotherapy series, this is a wonderful book on elimination disorders in children and adolescents that provides a solid understanding of the complexity of both diagnosis and treatment for these disorders. Readers will appreciate the multidisciplinary approach and the discussion of the latest advances in the field.
Purpose: The book provides a practical description and overview of the conditions, theories, models, and diagnostic and treatment recommendations. More importantly, it serves as a standalone reference in general pediatrics and a solid resource for both clinical and nonclinical persons. The authors have succeeded in creating a worthwhile addition to the field.
Audience: The audience includes, but is not limited to, practitioners in pediatrics, child psychiatry and psychology, social work, nursing, and parents themselves. Parents will appreciate the references as well as the easy-to-understand language.
Features: While there is a focus on constipation, encopresis, toileting refusal, and nocturnal and diurnal enuresis, the book provides a strong general overview of elimination disorders. Epidemiologic data and etiologic causes are discussed in detail along with differential diagnostic considerations. Considering the size and price of the book, it is surprisingly thorough and wonderfully detailed. Readers will especially appreciate the case vignettes, websites, and selected reading suggestions.
Assessment: This is truly a great addition not only to the Advances in Psychotherapy series, but to the field itself.

    Why would you try anything else?

    This book is so easy to read and understand that it's great for both busy professionals and interested parents. The treatments are based on real scientific research, much of it conducted throughout Dr. Christophersen's 30-year career working with children. Perhaps best of all, he explains the physical reasons why some children have "elimination problems." For example, a child may refuse to potty in the toilet because it hurts for terribly constipated children to do so! Why hasn't anyone explained it that way before?! The treatments are equally straightforward. More fiber in the children's diet, more fluids, more exercise, a little bit of over-the-counter medicine on a temporary basis and a lot of positive coaching by the parent. This kind of common sense approach really appeals to me, and I found the case studies informative and very reassuring. Every pediatrician should have and read this book. Every parent of a child with these problems should find a health practitioner who is familiar with this research! Why would anyone administer heavy duty prescriptions when these practically medicine-free (and analysis-free) methods work so well!
