What is the STAGES Model?
STAGES is an integrally based development model that charts human development, from the first person perspective encountered in infancy, to the latest researched levels of development— the late sixth-person perspective. The model was created by Terri O’Fallon and is based on decades of educational experience and over seven years of research. Its scoring system is derived from an integral developmental model, that includes quadrants and levels, and addresses lines, states, and reflects on masculine and feminine types.
One of the strengths of the STAGES model is that it has broad application in a variety of fields, both personal and professional. This includes:
- Psychotherapy and Coaching
- Counseling and Advising
Comprehensive: Includes many dimensions of human experience
Predictive: The precision of the model allows clarity in navigating life stage transitions
Dynamic: Recognizes the fluid nature of human development; it is not a rigid model
Simple “3 Questions” method: For identifying current state/stage in self and others
What We Offer
We offer online courses and in-person workshops on a variety of topics related to STAGES, both personal and professional. Please sign up for our email list below if you would like to be informed when trainings are offered.
The STAGES Assessment identifies your core stage of perspective development within the STAGES mode. Your stage is a coherent and internally consistent belief system that describes how you are likely to think, feel, and behave in various life situations. This is the level from which you consistently make meaning of your life’s experiences. The assessment provides practical recommendations for further development and learning.
Praise for the STAGES Model
“Terri O’Fallon is one of the very most important integrally informed researchers now working. I highly recommend checking her out at your earliest opportunity!”Ken Wilber
“Post-conventional developmental stages are one of the most important yet under researched areas of Integral studies, and we can all be grateful to Terri O’Fallon, who is one of the very few researchers exploring this crucial topic.”Roger Walsh
