Kimberley O’Brien:
Encopresis, more commonly called “soiling” is a debilitating condition to deal with as a parent, as it usually occurs at a stage when children are past the age of toilet training. While encopresis is a complex problem amongst many families, it is treatable. The majority of children with encopresis can be effectively treated with a combination of medical, psychological, and dietary interventions. This training will outline the diagnostic features, causes, and treatment of encopresis. Behavioral approaches will be highlighted, including how play therapy activities can be incorporated so that children will be more motivated to comply with the treatment protocol. 

Susan Stutzman:
There are many children who struggle with the shame, embarrassment, and inconvenience of diurnal or nocturnal Enuresis (or both) who present for child or play therapy. Susan will provide practical knowledge and play based interventions from a Gestalt Therapy perspective heavily informed by neuroscience. Psychoeducation interventions to use with parents will also be highlighted.

    I encounter enuresis and encopresis much more often than I expected as a therapist working with children. This training gave me the foundational knowledge and skills to feel more confident in addressing the needs of children and families facing these issues. The instructors were both very competent and brought lots of clinical experience to the presentation. I found it to be an engaging presentation.

    The interventions taught to treat enu/enco are appropriate and useful. Now I know that using a Lego toilet can be useful in tx. I appreciate the comprehensiveness of the instruction.
