Summary
"The thesis is that there may be a psychosomatic disposition specific to the delinquent type of personality having a history of persistent enuresis. An intimate association between persistent enuresis and personality mal-integration was the original clinical groundwork of this conclusion. With an expanding frame of reference beginning in neurology and finally embracing a psychoanalytic viewpoint. Dr. Michaels' research started with interest in the significance of a high incidence of persistent enuresis in the histories of delinquents and led eventually to formulation of a new character type. The juvenile delinquent and psychopathic personality of this newly formulated impulsive type has a history of persistent enuresis that bespeaks its own psychosomatic substructure and a unique mal-integrated configuration of personality. The pattern of lack of control appears at all levels of the personality, biological, neurological, psychological and sociological. Persistent enuresis if first seen as the psychobiologic paradigm of behavior that shows lack of control due to deficiency in inhibition"--Jacket.
