DR TOMIC ABOUT THIS METHOD: The concept of my method for treating bed-wetting (nocturnal enuresis) views this problem in children as a learning failure rather than as a somatic expression of a psychological problem. Accordingly, the treatment is aimed at the learning malfunction through a conditioning technique, instead of the presumed psychological disturbance. My method of treatment is a combination of direct and indirect suggestions with behavioural interventions, developed over a period of thirty years treating nocturnal enuresis in three different countries.
