Naomi Feil, MSW, ACSW
Ms. Naomi Feil began the Validation method in response to her dissatisfaction with traditional methods of working with the severely disoriented old-old people. She developed Validation between 1963 and 1980, as a group worker at Montefiore Home and as an Adjunct Instructor at the School of Applied Social Sciences, Case Western Reserve University. Ms. Feil now practices Validation with residents in nursing homes and day care centers throughout the world, and leads workshops on Validation throughout Europe, Australia and North America. She is the founder of the Validation Training Institute, has authored three books on Validation, numerous articles and 10 award winning film scripts.
