Motivational Therapy for Bed-Wetting - Topic Overview
Motivational therapy for
bed-wetting often simply involves telling children
that they have control of their bodies and encouraging them to gain that
control. Parents and the child together can also design a reward system for dry
days that will encourage and motivate the child.
This therapy may
involve a series of counseling sessions with a trained professional. During the
sessions, the counselor encourages the child to take responsibility for the
bed-wetting and to be very involved in the treatment. The counselor, parents,
and child decide what reward (praise, stickers, or trinkets) the child will be
given for dry days and/or nights.
