dc.description.abstract Assesses the efficacy of group therapy with regard to nocturnal enuresis and compares this method with hypnotherapy. Twenty-six subjects between 7 years 6 months and 14 years were paired and then randomly assigned to either a treatment or no treatment group. Group therapy was combined with a reinforcement-responsibility technique, where the subjects were active participants in their treatment. Results indicated that group therapy was significantly effective both in terms of the pre-treatment baseline and in comparison with the control group. Significant improvement in measured maladjustment was also evident in the treatment group. There were no significant differences between the results of group therapy and hypnotherapy and indirect evidence indicated that these results were also comparable with short-term conditioning and imiprimine treatment. It was suggested that group therapy is a viable alternative technique for treating enuresis. It is economical in terms of professional time, and is not disruptive to the family nor is there a striking rebound effect, as reported with conditioning and imiprimine treatment. en
