About STAGES Certification 

We know our clients don’t always make meaning the same way that we do. In fact, that very idea is built into the coaching and therapy models we use. Yet these models often presume an individualistic point of view, when in fact many of our clients may not be there yet — or be well beyond it. This can have profound implications for how we engage with our practice and how effective we are with our clients.

What You’ll Learn and Practice:

  • How the model can work seamlessly with your current training
  • How STAGES can support human transformation
  • Why this model can work so seamlessly with your own training as a coach or therapist
  • Understanding the process of applying STAGES in real-world situations
  • How this model relates to psychological and collective shadows
  • Ways to determine your clients level of perspective taking
  • Why it’s important to offer different kinds of support and challenge to different levels (and especially to those who may be transiting from one level to another)
  • Understanding how your clients’ ongoing development can be encouraged and supported
  • How your own developmental perspective influences your work and your interactions
  • Working with traumas inside of the STAGES model
  • How a community of like-minded practitioners can offer a far more powerful and effective learning environment
  • The latest edges of human development and what we know about them
  • Ways to continue your own path of continuous evolution and growth


In the Diagnostics portion of this certification (September 11, 2019 – March 11, 2020), you will gain a cognitive understanding of the STAGES developmental model. The Intervention portion (April 8, 2020 – September 9, 2020) you will apply this model inside of your own practice and modality. In Supervision (Nov 11, 2020 – May 12, 2021) participants will have 6 months of individual and group oversight in applying STAGES in their professional practice.
