How can one learn to better understand the perplexing world of the dementia patient? How does one deal empathetically with difficult behaviour in everyday situations? The method of “validation” has proved to be efficacious in such situations: It demonstrates how to approach confused elderly persons with understanding. Professional carers have been using this method for a long time and have come to appreciate ist value. Using this book, relatives, neighbours and friends caring for a dementia patient can learn about this method.

The author
Vicki de Klerk-Rubin, Den Haag, the Netherlands, is a nurse and validation master. Together with her mother, Naomi Feil, who founded the method, she has developed validation further and, as European Director of the Validation Training Institute, counsels validation training institutes in Europe and holds lectures around the world.

Target Groups
All those caring for dementia patients, at home or in nursing homes.
