'Dirty Little Secret' Can Make New School Year a Nightmare

SPRING LAKE, Mich., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Encopresis isn't the sort of medical problem making headlines, but there's no mistaking the quiet emotional toll it takes on children as school resumes across the country. Bright, vivacious boys and girls in elementary school are becoming quiet, withdrawn and ostracized. After all, children can be cruel and nobody wants to associate with the "smelly kid" sitting all alone. In truth, they aren't alone. One in every 33 children in every grade school could be suffering from the same disorder of the bowels. Retired Michigan psychologist Dr. Robert Collins has made it his mission to help children and their parents escape isolation and know that help is available.

"Encopresis is known as the 'dirty little secret' because people aren't willing to discuss the issue of fecal incontinence in children age four and up," said Collins, a psychologist with nearly four decades of experience. "Parents often feel like they've failed in their responsibilities, or they suspect their child is being stubborn when soiled pants are discovered. Nothing could be further from the truth. Encopresis is a bowel disorder that can be successfully treated."

Collins has blazed medical trails by developing his "Soiling Solutions" treatment protocol, employing a carefully timed use of suppositories and enemas explained in his "Clean Kid Manual" available at His methods have succeeded where more traditional methods - oral stool softening agents - failed.

"Parents needn't feel embarrassment," Collins added. "Encopresis can be treated, but it's only possible by raising awareness of the problem."

About Soiling Solutions - Seeking a better way to treat children suffering from encopresis (fecal incontinence), psychologist Dr. Robert Collins, Ph.D., introduced his innovative "Soiling Solutions" approach in 1998. Utilizing enemas and suppositories in a structured bowel retraining program, Collins' technique marked a departure from oral stool softening agents favored by many pediatricians. Registered internationally, Collins' "Soiling Solutions" system continues to gain popularity, with patients treated successfully in the U.S., France, the Netherlands, China, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. Dr. Collins has given Iceland's medical system permission to translate portions of his manual for their use.
