I believe the term we are looking for is spelt 'encopresis'. A google
search for 'pediatric psychology' leads to
Journal of Pediatric Psychology
Copyright © 2002 Society of Pediatric Psychology
Search page in the above website
with key-words 'forcibly stopping bowel movement' led to documents
containing the word 'encopresis' in the title.
