Dr. Harvey Sterns, long-time VTI Board member and professor emeritus of psychology at University of Akron (just two of his many activities) will be presenting our recent research at the Gerontological Society of America Scientific Conference this November in Indianapolis. Our study looked at the effectiveness of the 6 Skill Building Blocks, a totally online, asynchronous training in basic Validation skills. It was shown to be relevant to caregivers and effective training. “This is a great way to onboard new staff or refresh person-centered skills.”
The Validation First World Congress will draw on 40 years of groundbreaking innovation, highlight collaboration with all stakeholders and focus on current needs of today’s caregivers in order to create a path to continue innovating and supporting the lives of elders worldwide.
