STAGES Essentials for Psychotherapy & Coaching

Precision in Client Assessment and Intervention
with Terri O’Fallon, PhD & Kim Barta, MA

Thank you for your interest in supporting our new online course for therapists and coaches. This page provides information about the course, the free Intro Session to the course we’re asking you to promote, and provides all of the information you need for your promotion.

About the Course

STAGES Essentials is an 8-week live video online course on the application of the STAGES model of human development to psychotherapy and coaching, taught by Terri O’Fallon PhD and Kim Barta MA. Although the course is primarily for therapists and coaches, it is also a great resource for anyone who mentors or guides others, including parents, spiritual guides, teachers and healers. The course will give participants a solid grounding in the model and how to apply it in a therapeutic or coaching setting. This will be done through live teaching modules with live Q&A, as well as course materials and interactive exercises. The course will also offer CEUs for those who have ongoing training requirements in their field. The course is scheduled to begin September 28.

About the Free Intro Session

Although Terri and Kim have been teaching the STAGES model for about three years, this is their first online course and the first to be offered to a wider audience. In order to give prospective participants a sense of the power of the model as a therapeutic tool, and a feel for Terri and Kim as teachers, we are hosting a free Intro Session to the course:

What We Ask of You

We invite you to promote this free Intro Session to your community. It’s a free event so it will be easy for people in your community to participate. After the Intro Session, we’ll provide participants detailed information about the course itself and how to register. Thus, you don’t need to promote the course directly, just the Intro Session.

Since we are just getting started in the business that hosts our work, STAGES Internationals, we would greatly appreciate your support as a one-time favor. If you can do this, we will be very grateful, and all the information you need is on this page.

If that’s not possible, however, we can offer you a commission of $75 for every registration that comes from your efforts (excluding individuals already on our email list).

In either case, we’ll ask you to use a special tracking link so that we can see how many people signed up for the Intro Session and registered for the course as a result of your efforts.

How and When to Promote

We ask you to promote the Into Session by email, Facebook, Twitter, on your website, in your newsletter, etc., at least once between August 8 and August 24 (the date of the Intro Session). You may promote more frequently if you wish.

Your Unique Tracking Link

All of your promotions for our course must include the unique tracking link that we provide to you. When someone in your community clicks on that link, they will be taken to the registration page for the Intro Session, and our affiliate tracking system will record that the click is attributed to your promotion. If that person subsequently registers for the course, our system will know and you will get credit for that registration.

IMPORTANT! You must use your tracking link in all your promotions for the course. If you don’t use it, or if you modify it, we will not be able to track the results of your efforts and so we will not be able to pay commissions.

Dear _________,

We want to let you know about a new online course from our good friends Terri O’Fallon and Kim Barta, STAGES Essentials for Therapy and Coaching.

STAGES is a human development model created by Terri based on her years of research. Influenced by Ken Wilber’s four-quadrant Integral approach, STAGES describes 12 stages of human development, in three “tiers,” with a reiterating pattern in each tier. Intrigued by the possibilities of her findings, Terri began teaching STAGES workshops three years ago, along with her brother, Kim, who had been using elements of the model in his psychotherapy practice.

Although STAGES is applicable to many areas of life, they found it 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.

After doing several in-person workshops for therapists and coaches that were enthusiastically well-received, they decided to create their first online course to bring the STAGES model to a wider audience of therapists and coaches. On Wednesday, August 24 they’re hosting a free 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 three questions that allow you to pinpoint your client’s current level of development with remarkable accuracy
  • The three distinctive and repeating parameters for each level of development that drive psychosocial development
  • How to apply the model to yourself in a therapeutic or coaching context so that you can see your own level, and how that affects the client interaction, more clearly

You will also receive a free PDF, Overview of the STAGES Model, when you register.

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.
