Validation Method Insights
In this video, Naomi Feil, founder of the Validation Method, a pioneering approach to empathically entering the world of elderly persons who are living with dementia, is interviewed about her life and work by neurologist, Daniel C. Potts, founder and President of Cognitive Dynamics Foundation.
