Practitioner Partners

Our Certified Practitioner Partners include coaches, mentors, consultants and therapists who use the STAGES Model in their work.

All STAGES practitioners are certified and have formal agreements to ensure their use of the STAGES model conforms to high professional and ethical standards. We nourish this network with ongoing training, and we encourage them to share their experience with each other so that we can continually refine STAGES and its applications.

Certified Coaches, Therapists, and Mentors: These professionals have completed the year-long certification training with STAGES and a successful six-month supervision, and are certified in using the STAGES model in their own practice using their own therapeutic tools and training.

Certified Assessors and Debriefers: Assessors and debriefers have undergone rigorous training over 18+ months. When you take an assessment, these are the practitioners who will make arrangements to debrief you on the results, then work with you to guide you based on the STAGES Assessment.

The STAGES Matrix: Understanding Development

As we grow into adults, we develop the capacity to take on more complex perspectives. This development can continue throughout adulthood and be expressed as emerging abilities to take larger perspectives, see novel solutions, and find unifying themes in life, work, and love.

Terri O’Fallon talks about how we can:

  • Learn the differences between major stages of development.
  • Determine our own stage of perspective development—and what it means.
  • Discover how our perspective can be developed over time.
  • Understand how our stage of perspective development can positively influence our work, our relationships, and our self-understanding.

Grief & Loss: Transforming Sorrow into Wisdom

Kim Barta dives into grief and loss from a developmental and practical perspective. Grief and loss have major impacts on us. Our instincts often direct us to try and move away from the pain as the waves of grief crash over us, one after another. And yet, like waves on a real beach, we can move out of the turmoil by going into the waves and towards the calm waters beyond.

In this talk, Kim will discuss how:

  • Grief is not a disorder but a healthy process that can help clarify values and uncover your deeper self
  • We can move into our grief without getting overwhelmed by it
  • Attending to our grief can allow us to uncover the wisdom within it
  • Our sorrow and loss can open the doors of appreciation and compassion
