Overview

A compact, "how-to" manual on effective, evidence-based treatments for enuresis and encopresis. The aim of this book is to provide readers with a practical overview of the definitions, characteristics, theories and models, diagnostic and treatment recommendations, and relevant aspects and methods of evidence-based psychosocial treatments for encopresis and enuresis, primarily in children. Although treatments and research for elimination disorders are reviewed in general, particular attention is directed at constipation and encopresis, toileting refusal, and diurnal and nocturnal enuresis due to the high incidence of these conditions in children. Case vignettes, websites, and suggestions for further reading are provided for the interested reader.

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!
