A Breakthrough in Communication

Watch this very moving video from Youtube of Naomi Feil, founder of Validation Therapy, and Gladys Wilson.

‘A time to keep silent, and a time to speak.’ (Ecclesiastes. 3:7)

In this video we see how someone with advanced dementia who is seemingly silent and who has lost the power of speech reacts to gentle prompting with hymns which she remembers from childhood. In this way, from being someone who is ignored and passed by, she recovers her personhood and her humanity.
