Product Description

Review

"Naomi Feil has developed practical techniques to open doors previously shut, span bridges across vast communication divides, and bring comfort and joy to disoriented elderly, their caregivers and loved ones." -- Fran Bulloff, J.D., President "Validation Training Institute"

"Validation can and does help individuals with agitation and aggressive behavior. This book gives you the approach, the tools, and the opportunity for healing. I highly recommend it to my medical colleagues and all those caring for individuals with Alzheimer's or other dementias." -- Craig P. Solberg, MD "HealthEast Medical Care for Seniors, St. Paul, Minnesota"

"Validation is a moral imperative in our time. Read this book and learn how to communicate with people with and without dementia. On virtually every page is an insight that helps us break through the fears of aging, dependency, and death." -- Michael Verde, Founder & President "Memory Bridge"

"This third edition offers even more stories, ideas, directions, and information about the Validation Method and the respect, fulfillment, and human connections it creates. It deserves to be read and applied by everyone having a sincere interest in dementia work and caregiving." -- Stephen Klotz, Certified Validation Master, M.Div., and Executive Director "Validation Education, Country Meadows Retirement Communities, Hershey, PA"

"Naomi Feil and Vicki de Klerk-Rubin present an artful, sensitive, and caring intervention approach to working with confused and disoriented older adults. The case studies and examples are rich with insight and provide clear examples of techniques that may be used. The approach is empowering to older adults and to their caregivers." -- Harvey L. Sterns, Ph.D., Director "Institute for Life-Span Development and Gerontology, The University of Akron"

"As an organization we have a goal to spread the message about Validation Therapy and provide training so that people with the disease can receive the care that they deserve." -- Wayne Olson, Senior Vice President of Healthcare Operations "Volunteers of America"

"The Validation Breakthrough teaches caregivers and families how to stay connected to their loved ones even in the late stages of Alzheimer's and how to communicate with them even when they no longer can." -- Donna Beveridge, watercolorist, teacher, and literacy specialist diagnosed with probable early-stage "email"

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).

Easily accessible book on how to improve communication with people who are in various stages of dementia. She recommends an eclectic approach using techniques from: NLP, music and dance therapy wrapped around a profoundly respectful person-centred approach. The only difficulty with Feil's work is her unique way of describing the various stages of dementia. Her group is the only one in the world to do this, so one has to learn her methods of categorising dementia first. I personally believe this is not necessary as long as one recognises, as she does, that no technique works on everybody, irrespective of their stage in the dementia process. When validation works it can often be dramatic and humbling which brings relief to both client and carer.

Very interesting subject which is relevant to any one who is working with the old old individual who is living with dementia. the book is well written but still takes time to assimilate all the information that it contains. I have yet to put it into practice as I am still digesting all the information. would recommend the book to any one working in the filed.
