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.
The brain is made of different kinds of cells. Childhood brain tumors are grouped and treated based on the type of cell the cancer formed in and where the tumor began growing in the CNS.

See Table 1 for a list of tumor types and staging and treatment information for newly diagnosed and recurrent childhood brain tumors.
