Validation is an essential skill of life and a powerful tool in clinical work. Fundamentally, it is the feeling of empathy in action. This course reviews the article, “Validation Principles and Strategies” written by Marsha Linehan and Kelly Koerner. It outlines when it is useful, the science behind why it’s effective, and six approaches of using it. The article was first published in the book, “Cognitive Behavior Therapy: Applying Empirically Supported Techniques In Your Practice.”
