Subject:Inappropriate toileting

I colleague of my asked me to post this on the listserv. We are working with several school age children who are toileting outside of the toilet-- sometimes in the yard, on couches, putting feces in various locations around the school, etc. I am seeking reading material on how to respond to this behavior and when is it appropriate to diagnose encopretic or enuretic behavior. Thank you so much for your assistance. Ashley R. DePrez, MSW, LCSW Clinical Director Family Works, Inc.
