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
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 training 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!
There will be 2 in-person trainings: May 8-10 and August 28th-30th (More details to follow)
