Barbara Moore and Gaile Nixon
All treatment specialists receive comprehensive training which involves a combination of well-researched learning and training procedures, which have been supplemented by our own carefully designed techniques. Each treatment advisor supervised by our Director of Treatment who has worked with the Enuresis Treatment Center for over 25 years. Staff meetings are conducted monthly to bring the newest information to all Counselors.
Parents work closely with the same treatment advisor and are guided step-by-step through all phases of treatment. Using our proven methods, the bedwetter will permanently end the bedwetting as well as benefit from sleeping with a new healthy productive sleep pattern every night for the rest of their lives.
