Dry Beds

As in Sufi tales or Zen stories, the recipient of the knowledge of the healer must be in a state of readiness to receive. In many of those stories the supplicant comes to the master but is refused entry until the vehicle is ready to receive the riches of the teaching. Erickson often accomplishes this preparation by causing the listener or the patient to wait a long time before he delivers his punch line. For example, when he presented the next talc to a group of students, he spent about one-half hour in building up to the final prescription. Some of this time was spent in outlining the background history. Some was spent in asking the listeners how they would treat such a patient. Some time was spent in telling other stories, not directly related to the problem. He repeated such phrases as There is something that you know but don't know that you know. When you know what it is that you don't know you know, then you will be able to have a permanently dry bed. This type of puzzling and...

The Principle Of Positive Suggestion

Surprise, you realize that it's time for another meal. As another example, rather than suggesting, You won't eat sweets or foods that are bad for you, you may suggest You will protect your body, treating it with kindness and respect, as if it were just like your precious, innocent little boy that you love, totally dependent upon your care and protection. You will protect your body, just as you protect and take care of your son. In talking to a child with a bedwetting problem, you talk about having a dry bed rather than about not wetting the bed.

Questions and answers

Elliotson, the man who introduced the stethoscope to England, also treated children with mesmerism. Even before this he was an advocate of guidance aimed at parents. After gaining experience with hypnosis, he used it in parent guidance, as well as in psychotherapy with children. Somewhat later Liebault used hypnosis for the treatment of children at the famous Nancy School of Hypnosis. In 1889 Bertillon spoke at the International Congress of Hypnotism in Paris on the subject, The Value of Hypnosis in the Treatment of Vicious and Degenerate Children. He stated that many carefully observed facts proved the therapeutic value of suggestion in the following diseases of children incontinence, nervous twitchings, nocturnal terrors, enuresis, onanism (by which he meant excessive masturbation), blepharospasm (tic of the eyelid), and other functional disturbances of the nervous system. In this address, he also mentioned the value of hypnosis in the treatment of lying, cruelty, idleness, and...

Indications and Contraindications

Must possess at least some motivation for change. We should point out, once again, that mere knowledge of hypnosis does not qualify one as a child therapist. This is a subspecialty area requiring training in more than hypnosis alone. If you are not trained to treat a pediatric problem with techniques other than hypnosis, you should not be treating the patient with hypnosis. There are certainly times (e.g., enuresis) when thorough medical evaluation is indicated prior to using hypnosis. Other absolute contraindications (Olness & Gardner, 1988) for child hypnotherapy include (1) when it would lead to physical endangerment of the patient (e.g., in athletics) (2) when the use of hypnosis might aggravate existing psychological problems or create additional ones (e.g., creating amnesia for a girlfriend who has rejected an adolescent.) (3) when it is for fun (stage or entertainment hypnosis) (4) when a problem may be more effectively treated by a nonhypnotic method (e.g., family therapy) and...

This is the second day of January . . . and you have wet the bed, your parents say, every night for twelve years. You know that and I know that, so now let us forget about it. Let us talk about something that is really important. Now, this is the second of January, and I don't think it would be reasonable, not the least bit reasonable in any way, for me to expect you to have a permanently dry bed two weeks from now. And you know, by that time January will be practically over, and then February is a short month. Does anybody want to dispute that It is a short month, and I certainly don't think you ought to start a permanently dry bed before March. It doesn't seem reasonable that you do it before then, but I will tell you what you might be interested in doing. In a couple of weeks from now I point to the calendar on the wall , I would like to have you puzzle mentally over this question In two weeks from today, will it be on Wednesday, or will it be on Thursday, that I will have a dry...

In the same way that the moon controls an even and steady rhythm for the ocean, so your mind can maintain an even and steady rhythm for you while you sleep. This rhythm will allow you to sleep comfortably and allow you to maintain control over your bladder. By doing this, you will be able to experience the comfort and confidence of dry beds.

Daniel P Kohen MD

As with any clinical problem in children, the success of a hypnotic approach to enuresis is It is critical that a careful and comprehensive history be obtained so that the clinician can be assured that appropriate medical assessment of enuresis has taken place prior to proceeding to do hypnotherapy and teaching self-hypnosis. The history should assure that (1) the child is over six years of age (at under age six, enuresis should be considered a normal developmental variant unless the child has been completely dry and suddenly started to wet again) (2) the absence of associated daytime wetting (which most often indicates either an important physical cause or a more profound psychological problem), (3) the absence of known physical causes of enuresis such as urinary tract infections, chronic constipation with or without soiling, urinary tract malformations, juvenile onset diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, hyperthyroidism, or spinal dysraphism. Such histories can be obtained with...

Therapy medical considerations

Enuresis One of the most important things one needs to accomplish in treating enuresis is to improve the child's confidence in himself, to get him to stop worrying about his failures. Thus it is better to persuade him and more particularly, to persuade his family to stop talking about a wet bed and start discussing dry beds. In simple language, one must help the child to an understanding of what aggressions are, what parental attitudes are, and so on. Of course it is frequently very important to include the parents in the treatment.

Principles in formulating suggestions Fourstage hypnotic protocol

There is much debate as to whether negative suggestions ( Stop wetting the bed or You will not be hungry ) are intrinsically flawed. In practice they can work. But you are taking a gamble that a given individual's unconscious will fully process the negation and act out the intention and not the representation being suggested. I would therefore advise you to stick with positive suggestions as much as you can (e.g., You will have a dry bed and You feel full after every meal ),

Explaining how the body works

Know how to talk to each other just fine all day long positive suggestions, ego-strengthening about competence . If the child is also having some dry beds each week, I add something like And even two or three nights each week they talk to each other fine. The brain is the boss of the body. The brain takes care of us, and even when we are asleep it may be resting, but it is paying attention, taking care of us, dreaming, keeping our heart beating, our lungs breathing, telling us how to kick the covers off if we're too hot, to turn the pillow over, etc. Sometimes the brain and bladder get in the bad habit of not talking to each other at night, and they need some reminders and some training, just like you trained yourself when you were even younger. And now that bladder and that brain dissociative suggestions know what to do without thinking about it out loud. So, when you learn this relaxing and imagining in a few moments or, at the next visit , you'll learn how to give them instructions...

This procedure is designed for working with children between seven and twelve years of age who enjoy and have been to the beach. As cited at the beginning of Stanton's paper, it is vitally important to obtain careful pediatric evaluation for bedwetting problems prior to pursuing psychologically oriented therapy. (Ed.) greater sense of self-confidence and control when you're sleeping at home or at a friend's house. We know that learning to have dry beds is something that people do as they grow older and develop more regular patterns of sleeping during the night. Some people do this when they are very young, perhaps two or three years of age, and other people do this when they are somewhat older. Still other people develop more adult sleeping patterns and dry beds at night when they are in middle school. I'm not exactly sure at what age you will develop these patterns however, I am sure that you can teach your mind to have greater control over urinating so that when your body is ready,...

Case Of Mr And Mrs J

The method used was a very light hypnotic trance, in which they were told that they had to obey all the instructions given them, no matter how absurd, ridiculous, or outrageous they might seem. Their deep religious feeling made it a certainty that they would obey a solemn promise. The promise they had to execute was this Every night they were to go to the bathroom at six o'clock. They would drink a glass of water before going to bed. They were to go to bed with the door to the bathroom locked. They would get into bed, kneel hand in hand facing their pillows on the bed, and proceed to urinate and get the necessary bed wetting over with. After that they could lie down with the certainty that the bed wetting had already been accomplished and he able to sleep the rest of the night without worrying about what time of the night they had wet the bed. They were made to promise to do this for two weeks, at the expiration of which period they could take a night's vacation they could go to bed...

H E Stanton PhD

Enuresis is an extremely common pediatric problem, but one that requires careful evaluation, as just indicated by Kohen. Before the age of five, the majority of bedwetting does not seem linked to organic or underlying psychological or family system causes (Olness & Gardner, 1988). Situational enuresis and secondary enuresis (where there previously was good control) are somewhat more suggestive of the absence of an organic problem. However, it is recommended that a careful medical evaluation always be conducted in children over the age of five. A pediatrician needs to rule out such potential organic causes as diabetes, urinary tract infections, congenital anomalies, seizures, occult spinal dysraphism, neurological etiologies, hyperthyroidism, and potential contributors such as diuretic medications and caffeine drinks (Olness & Gardner, 1988). Functions of the symptom within the family system and historic, unconscious factors may be ex plored through interview assessment and ideomotor...

Volume II

Areas covered include inductions, deepeners and actual scripts and strategies for a wide range of problems, from nail biting, weight loss and amnesia to anxiety, panic attacks and enuresis in children. There is also a detailed section on smoking cessation that delivers the powerful 'Single Session Stop Smoking Therapy Method'.


After the induction and therapy phase, I discuss with children their responses to the therapeutic metaphor. I have included the concept of a walkway which either changes directions or moves into different areas across slopes in order to assist youngsters with maintaining an even pace across phases of sleep. This is incorporated along with the metaphor of the moon's control over the tide pools, as there was some research done in the Stanford Sleep Research Lab in the late 1970s which suggested that bed wetting might be tied to inappropriate neurological triggering when moving from one phase of sleep to another.

Indirect hypnosis

Friend, sitting in the chair, has come to my office with Patient. Patient may be a child with enuresis, with a behavior problem, a nail-biter, a thumb-sucker, etc. In the opinion of the doctor, this child-or adult-requires therapy, but the friend or relative involved also needs help. Therefore, while my conversation with Patient is taking place, my purpose will be to induce a trance in Friend, or in both. Now, Patient, your friend here has brought you to see me. We have to discuss many things and what I would like you to do is to be willing to go into a trance state to try to alleviate or remove the condition of which you complain. Friend has shown much interest


When Leonard wet his pants, showed the loss of the righting reflex, and the apparent Babinski, there was nothing I could accomplish with him for he could no longer understand me. All I could do was to have him cleaned up and put to bed, and let him slowly come out of the hypnotic sleep and go into physiological sleep, then wake up next day he was out of contact with me. Much of the night the subject was still apparently in the infantile state for he continued to wet his bed. I had a lot of apologizing to do because he blamed the hypnosis for his bed-wetting. This was an experimental subject where we can try that kind of work. With a nonexperimental subject, one never attempts regressions of that sort.

Areas of usefulness

The gastrointestinal system will include ulcers, hyperacidity, constipation, plain old-fashioned bellyaches, heartburn, perhaps gall bladder diseases, and ailments of that nature Under the genitourinary system, such problems as enuresis, impotency, and premature ejaculation would be included, along with others discussed under obstetrics and gynecology.

Areas of Application

Hypnosis has been used with a tremendous diversity of childhood problems text anxiety, problems with studying and concentration, reading difficulties suggestions on these topics may be found in Chapter 14 , phobias (e.g., of school, animals), sleep disorders, social skill training and anxiety, conversion reactions, psychogenic amnesia, seizures, pain, bulimia and anorexia, enuresis (bedwetting), encopresis (soiling), stuttering, trichotillomania (hair pulling), nailbiting, thumbsucking, obesity, sleepwalking, tics, learning disabilities, chronic and acute pain, preparation for surgery, burns, gastrointestinal complaints, asthma, hives, allergies, warts, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), to increase compliance in diabetics, hemophilia, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, dentistry, headaches, urinary retention, cerebral palsy, Tourette syndrome, cancer and terminal illness, and sports. You will find suggestions concerning some of these areas of application in the pages to follow.

Case Of Mary Ann L

When the young girl, Mary Ann L., was brought in for consultation, her parents complained that she wet the bed 365 nights per year. For the initial three weeks of her therapy, she was asked to bring in a report, not on how wet her bed was, but on what percentage of her bed was dry. Some nights one corner was dry some nights the bed was one-third dry at other times, it was half dry. At the end of the three-week period, the girl who had previously wet her bed seven nights per week was now wetting the bed twice a week, that is, she had a dry bed five nights a week. Now, after five or six months of therapy, Mary Ann has a dry bed from twenty-five to twenty-eight nights a month and she is no longer worrying about the problem. Sometimes if one can get children to understand by indirection that wetting the bed is an aggression against the parents, the aggression itself may be employed to curtail the bedwetting. One can say, for example, Just think how mad mommy and daddy will be when they...
