Naomi Feil, M.S.W., A.C.S.W., is the developer of Validation. She was born in Munich in 1932, and grew up in the Montefiore Home for the Aged in Cleveland Ohio, where her parents worked. Naomi developed Validation as a response to her concern about the lack of meaningful interactions that caregivers made with people living with dementia.
