The literature on treatment of elimination disorders has been stagnant for many years. In fact, beyond a few provocative correlations, nothing new or novel has been discussed for decades. It is possible, however, for the intrepid author to assemble the existing research in new and novel ways and to do so in a way that makes the material readily understandable, clini¬cally useful, and downright interesting. Tom Reimers has done just that in this book, which will grace my shelf now and for many years to come.”—Patrick C. Friman, PhD., ABPPClinical Professor of Pediatrics, UNMC

Elimination Disorders, specifically enuresis and encopresis, affect millions of children worldwide. Management of this problem is often a source of frustration for parents, especially as their children reach school age and beyond. For clinicians, having a good understanding of both the physical and behavioral factors that contribute to these problems is essential if they are to be successfully treated.

This volume will walk clinicians through the physical, behavioral, and emotional factors that contribute to the devel¬opment of these disorders and, most importantly, provide evidence-based interventions that will result in the effective treatment and elimination of these common clinical problems. Thus, this book will serve as a resource for clinicians to not only explain the etiology of enuresis and encopresis, but more importantly to provide clinically proven interventions that have been demonstrated to treat these disorders successfully.
