Naomi Feil is the founder and director in chief of the Validation Training Institute and a popular speaker in North America and Europe. After graduating with a Masters degree in Social Work from Columbia University in New York, she began working with the elderly. Between 1963 and 1980, she developed Validation – a type of therapy for older people with cognitive impairments and dementia – as a response to her dissatisfaction with traditional methods of working with the severely disoriented old-age people who were her clients
Join Naomi Feil, M.S., A.C.S.W., noted author, teacher and lecturer as she shares simple validation techniques to support elderly persons with Alzheimer’s-type Dementia. The process is a compassionate and effective approach to supporting disoriented people.
Everyone whose heard Naomi calls her amazing. She has dedicated her adult life to this work.
Through Validation, older persons who may retreat into fantasy or become confused are brought closer to reality and security. The method helps people reduce stress and enhance dignity and happiness. The Validation method works as it accepts the feelings of other persons and reaches out to them with empathy and compassion.
This workshop is designed for health and human service workers, families and volunteers who want to learn how to communicate with persons with Alzheimer’s-type dementia. This technique is good for ANYONE!
