Overview

Over 500,000 children suffer from nocturnal enuresis or 'bedwetting'. It can be as distressing for the children as for their families. Despite being such a widespread problem, many professionals are at a loss to know how to manage it. What treatment options are available, and how can they advise or support their patients? This accessible book describes with clarity and sensitivity the possible approaches to assessment, treatment, monitoring and evaluation of care. The text follows a logical sequence and includes quotes and drawings by children, diagrams and useful test summaries. Emphasis throughout is on the child's perspective. For example, their views on different types of enuresis alarm treatment are recorded (a form of 'consumer' acceptability testing). The child's role in treatment has until recently been neglected, with only the clinician's and parents' views being seriously considered. Recent work has demonstrated that the child's contribution is essential in designing effective intervention. Although firmly rooted in clinical practice the text is guided by research findings and appropriate references are provided.
