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

Thank you for your interest in promoting our new online course for therapists and coaches. This page provides all of the information you need for your promotion. We are most grateful for your support!

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. The course is for professional psychotherapists and coaches (life and business), and other professionals who give guidance to others in a professional context, including mentors, team leaders, facilitators, counselors, spiritual advisors, somatic and alternative healers, and others. 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 is scheduled to begin September 28.

What We Ask of You

We invite you to promote the course to your community through email, social media, print media, etc.; whatever channel is the best way for you to get the message out to your community. The course opened for registration on August 24 so you can do your promotion up to the start of the course on September 28. However, the best time to promote is prior to the end of early bird pricing on September 14, which will allow you to offer the best prices to your community.

An Exchange of Value

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). Or we can give you an equivalent amount as credit toward registration for the course.

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.

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 course, 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.

How to Get Started

If you are already signed up in our affiliate system and earlier promoted the free Intro Session to the course, updated copy and graphics for the course are on this page, and the tracking link we gave you for the Intro Session is what you should use for promoting the course. So you should have everything you need to promote the course.

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 Psychotherapy and Coaching, that begins September 28.

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, Terri and Kim decided to create their first online course to bring the STAGES model to a wider audience of therapists and coaches. If you are a therapist or coach, or someone who provided guidance to others in a professional context, we encourage you to look into this course.
