Night Wetting in Children: Psychological Aspects

  • Richard J. Butler (a1)
  • Published online: 01 May 1998

von Gontard's annotation (1998) on day- and night-wetting children takes a paediatric perspective on these prevalent and distressing conditions. This review addresses some of the major psychological issues relevant to nocturnal enuresis. Daytime wetting, which encapsulates a number of conditions each with separate aetiologies, distinct presentations, and specific treatment interventions, has been the focus of two recent reviews (Edens & Surwit, 1995; Robson, Leung, & Bloom, 1996) and will thus not be discussed in this annotation.
