PEREIRA, Rodrigo Fernando et al. The effect of the behavioral treatment for enuresis on other behavior problems. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.3, pp. 419-423. ISSN 0102-3772. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-37722009000300016.
This work aimed to investigate the treatment effect for enuresis on other behavior problems' scores. Clinical records of 97 enuretic children and adolescents, receiving urine alarm treatment in a university clinic center from 2002 to 2006, were analyzed. Behavior problems' data were assessed through the Child Behavior Checklist, filled by the mothers at the beginning and at the end of the treatment. Results indicate a significant reduction on behavior problems' scores at the end of treatment, despite of enuresis treatment outcome.
