Interview with Naomi Feil

Tutorial Goals

The goal of this tutorial is to give you a good foundation in the theory of Validation and descriptions of Validation techniques. This tutorial will not teach you everything about Validation, but it will give you enough to make a start and perhaps that will be enough to open up a whole new way of being with disoriented elderly people. After you have completed this tutorial, we encourage you to participate in a Validation Worker course

The Elderly

Many elderly people struggle with dementia. Naomi Feil has been working with the elderly her whole life and has developed Validation – an effective method for communicating with disoriented very old people.

  • Hi Cathy,
    I apologize for the problem with the course. Try doing the next lesson now. Please let me know if you can access it or not. If not, please send me as much information as possible and include a screenshot. I’ll have my tech support person look at it.


  • I had already completed a lesson . When I logged back in to do the next one it made me start over. Is it not saving what I do each time?
