A Functional Model for the Treatment of Primary Enuresis
Sam Goldstein, Robert Book
Enuresis, a problem often encountered in childhood, exists in approximately 10 to 15% of all 5 year olds, and by age 9 2% of all children remain bedwetters (Bassuk and Schoonover, 1978). It is likely that the practicing school psychologist will encounter a number of enuretic children each year. Unfortunately, parents are often misinformed about enuresis. Inappropriate parental response towards enuretic behavior may lead to secondary emotional problems which increase stress in the family and maladjustment at school. School psychologists are in a position to provide parents and children with factual information and to coordinate treatment for this developmental deviation as part of their services in the schools.
