The first in which there is a physiologic basis for the encopresis, the second in which there seems to be an emotional basis. PsychNet-UK.

  • Enuresis - It has been estimated that in the United Kingdom over half a million children between the ages of 6 and 16 years regularly wet the bed and more of these are boys than girls. Children vary in the age at which they are physically ready to have complete control over their bladders.PsychNet-UK.
