Subject: STAGES: A powerful tool for therapists and coaches

Dear _________,

We want to let you know about an online course for therapists and coaches from our good friends Terri O’Fallon and Kim Barta. STAGES Essentials for Therapy and Coaching is an 8-week course beginning in October that provides a solid foundation for using the STAGES model of development in your work with clients.

STAGES is a human development model created by Terri based on her years of rigorous research. Terri has been teaching STAGES workshops for about four years with Kim, who has been pioneering applications of the model in his psychotherapy practice.

Although STAGES is applicable to many areas of life, it is especially powerful when applied to psychotherapy and coaching. A key feature is its exquisite precision in determining the developmental stage of the client in the therapeutic moment. STAGES provides a framework and a straightforward method for doing this assessment with remarkable accuracy.

The essence of this is what Terri and Kim call the Three Questions. These are three questions the practitioner seeks to understand during the client interaction, the answers to which yield a remarkably precise location of the client’s developmental level at that time.

On September 20, Terri and Kim will host a live video Intro Session to the course. We invite you to participate and find out how the STAGES model can help enhance your therapy or coaching practice.

In this Intro Session you will learn:

  • The overall structure of the STAGES model
  • How the “Three Questions” are used to locate the client’s developmental level with great precision
  • How to apply the model to yourself so that you can see more clearly how your own level affects the client interaction
  • How STAGES supports both therapy and coaching without blurring the important distinctions between them

You will also receive two free papers (PDFs) when you register, Overview of the STAGES Model and Developmental Coaching, by Terri O’Fallon PhD. These papers provide an excellent overview of STAGES of how it supports psychotherapy and coaching.

If you’re not able to attend live, you can register and get access to a recording of the event that will be available the following day.

We think you’ll find the techniques in this free Intro Session very helpful in your practice even if you ultimately decide not to take the course.
