About the Author
<strong>Naomi Feil, M.S., A.C.S.W.</strong>, is the developer of Validation. 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 Mrs. Feil developed Validation as a response to her dissatisfaction with traditional methods of working with the severely disoriented old-old people who were her clients. In 1982 she published her first book, <em>Validation: The Feil Method</em>, which was revised in 1992. Her second book, <em>The Validation Breakthrough</em>, was published in 1993, and updated and revised in 2012. <br><br><strong>Vicki de Klerk-Rubin</strong> works full-time as a Validation Master-Teacher and lecturer as well as Naomi Feil's manager in Europe. As European Manager, she was a founding member of the European Validation Association (1993) and assisted in the development of Authorized Validation Organizations in Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Sweden and Switzerland. Her book, <em>Validation Techniques for Dementia Care: The Family Guide to Improving Communication </em>(English edition 2008) has been published in German (2006), Japanese (2009) and Swedish (2010).
