Validation Therapy


Validation Therapy was developed by a social worker for the elderly, Naomi Feil. Feil was highly dissatisfied on how people are treating elderly with cognitive impairments, specifically dementia. This type of therapy basically promotes empathizing with, listening to, respecting and valuing the elderly without judgment, rather than marginalizing and mistreating them. This would greatly enhance their dignity, reduce the stress these elderly are going through and increase their happiness.

Some clinicians believe that validation therapy does not require a specific therapeutic modality only a level of compassion for elderly patients.
