Highly practical training, highly recommend!

This training provided me with a strong, solid foundation to begin to offer letters for gender-affirming hormones and medical procedures right away. Dr. Keo-Meier has an amazing body of knowledge and experience and made this training highly practical and a wonderful interactive experience as well.

Must-attend learning experience for all clinicians

Dr. Keo-Meier’s Gender ASSET training provides mental health clinicians with the necessary knowledge required to properly assess and prepare clients for gender affirmative surgical procedures. Participants will exit the training feeling more confident with the evaluation process, various surgical procedures, and with providing letters of support/referral letters to medical professionals. This training is a must-attend learning experience for all clinicians seeking to strengthen their level of competency in assessing client’s psychological and practical preparedness prior to receiving gender affirmative surgery.

Earn Continuing Education (CE)

GEN wants to be sure that students are getting the most out of what our instructors and courses  have to offer which is why we offer Continuing Education (CE) for many of our courses. The folks at GEN have been working tirelessly to ensure that these courses offer CEs as an additional benefit to health and mental health care providers. GEN is approved to be a Licensed Social Worker CE Provider by the Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners. We also partner with the National Register of Health Service Psychologists to be able to offer APA CEs for psychologists. We are working on expanding our CE provision through the NBCC and AAFP in order to be able to provide CEs to counselors, physicians, and PAs on a national level. Attendees are responsible to check with their licensing board in order to make sure that the credits will be counted for their specific state and type of license.
