  UK Person-centred approach to validation training

 

 Julia Pitkin trained as a teacher in the Validation Method in the US and Person-centered Counselling Skills. The Therapeutic Dementia Practitioner & iCARER Facilitator's Training is the first of its kind in the UK. 

We have developed a distinct validation training; a UK person-centred approach, offering a synergy of the Validation Method and the UK's best practice and use of language, therefore meeting the UK's dementia quality standards in person-centred care. The Validation Method (Naomi Feil, 1983, 2015) in the UK is not yet supported and guided by an Authorised Validation Organisation.

These communication skills, once gained are never lost, and transfer many other areas, such as supervision, support and mentoring.
