Enuresis Symptoms and DSM-IV Diagnosis

Enuresis Symptoms and Diagnosis Overview:

Enuresis symptoms and diagnostic criteria follow below. While some of these Enuresis symptoms may be recognized by family, teachers, legal and medical professionals,  and others, only  properly trained mental health professionals (psychologists, psychiatrists, professional counselors etc.) can or should even attempt to make a mental health diagnosis. Many additional factors are considered in addition to the Enuresis symptoms in making proper diagnosis, including frequently medical and psychological testing considerations. This information on Enuresis symptoms and diagnostic criteria are for information purposes only and should never replace the judgement and comprehensive assessment of a trained mental health clinician.
