Experience in the use of hypnosis in complex treatment of 75 children with urological diseases at an in-patient hospital is generalized. In patients with total epispadias, exstrophy and trauma of the urinary bladder postoperative hypnotherapy helped in training and restoration of micturition as a result of which a second operative intervention was not needed. After removal of a drain which had been inserted for a long time for urethral stricture suggestions made during hypnosis allayed fear and pain during micturition and thus significantly contributed to the restoration of this act.

Severe bladder dysfunction with possible consequence on the upper urinary tract caused by psychological trauma were recently identified. Hinman in 1973 was the first to report a series of 14 patients with severe abnormal bladder and bowels behaviour with organic cause. He described the most common symptoms met in this group of patients and their management using a non surgical approach based on bladder reeducation and hypnosis. Other authors such as Allen in 1977 reported a similar experience and found severe detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia.

The development of the power therapies, behavioral medicine, and short term interventions have reported such success even with trauma cases that it is relevant to question the justification for lengthy psychotherapy. Yet some patients with complex mind/body conditions impervious to medical treatment/hypnosis may require extended, multi-modal, integrative therapy.
