Abstract

Childhood holds a very important place in the life of every human being. Children can have emotional and behavioral problems that are real and painful. The behavioral problems seen in middle childhood are stuttering, pica, sleep problems, enuresis, encopresis and tics. STATEMENT: An experimental study to assess the effectiveness of behavioral modification therapy on nocturnal enuresis among children of primary care givers (6-12 years) at selected urban area, Vellore. OBJECTIVES: 1. To assess the levels of nocturnal enuresis among children of primary care givers. 2. To evaluate the effectiveness of behavioral modification therapy on nocturnal Enuresis among children of primary care givers. 3. To find out association between the post assessment scores of nocturnal enuresis and the selected demographic variables. METHODS: The research design selected was Pre Experimental, one group pre and post test design. Judgemental sampling Technique was adopted to selected 35 children of primary care givers. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for analysis and interpretation of data. RESULTS: Least number of children 3(9%) had mild levels of nocturnal enuresis, 7 (20%) had moderate levels of nocturnal enuresis, more than one quarter of the children 10(28%) had severe levels of nocturnal enuresis, nearly half of the children 15(43%) had profound levels of nocturnal enuresis during pre assessment, whereas after behavioral modification therapy, nearly half of the children 14(40%) had mild levels of nocturnal enuresis, less than half of the children 12(34%) had moderate levels of nocturnal enuresis, less than one quarter 7(20%) children had severe levels of nocturnal enuresis and least number of children 2(6%) had profound levels of nocturnal enuresis. • Less than one quarter of the children 4(12%) had mild levels of nocturnal enuresis, more than half of the children 19 (54%) had moderate levels of nocturnal enuresis, less than half of the children 10(28%) had severe levels of nocturnal enuresis during pre-test. After behavioral modification therapy, majority of the children 27(77%) had mild levels of nocturnal enuresis, below the one quarter of the children 8(23%) had moderate levels of nocturnal enuresis, none had severe levels of nocturnal enuresis. • The post assessment findings revealed that there was a significant difference at (p<0.001) in the mean difference score of pre and post assessment on effectiveness of behavioral modification therapy. There was an improvement in levels of nocturnal enuresis scores among children after behavior modification therapy, hence hypothesis 1 was accepted. • There was a significant association (p<0.05) between the post assessment scores of nocturnal enuresis and the selected demographic variables such as age of the child, sex of the child and past history of enuresis in siblings. The above result indicate that the behavioral modification therapy had a significant effect in reducing the levels of nocturnal enuresis among children. CONCLUSION: From the study findings, it can be concluded that the behavioral modification therapy was effective in improving the levels of nocturnal enuresis among children.
