A Preliminary Investigation of Three Issues Pertaining To a Common Treatment for Nocturnal Enuresis
Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry
Two adolescent brothers exhibiting nocturnal enuresis since birth participated in this multiple case study examining the successful application of a modified alarm and pad procedure with a deaf youth and the generalization of effects to an initially untreated, non-hearing impaired sibling. A description of the treatment program and the explicit statement of an avoidance contingency prior to intervention resulted in a rapid and marked increase in percentage of dry nights in both cases, with further increases observed following implementation of an alarm and pad plus accident correction procedure in conjunction with self-monitoring. Treatment gains were maintained at a 10-month follow-up.
