What our students have to say
Ph.D. Associate Professor, School of Professional Psychology Licensed Psychologist (OH)
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.
Invaluable and necessary resource!
With the Gender ASSET, Dr. Keo-Meier and Mx. Keo-Meier have created an invaluable and necessary resource for anyone working with the trans/gender non-conforming population.
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 have CEs associated with them as an additional benefit to health and mental health care providers. GEN partners with the National Register of Health Service Psychologists and the American Academy of Family Physicians to be able to provide CEs to mental health and health care providers. GEN is also an Approved Continuing Education Provider for the National Board for Certified Counselors (ACEP 7060) and a Provider of Continuing Education Credits for the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (20-114-GEN). Each individual GEN course will list the type and number CEs associated. Attendees are responsible to check in with their licensing board in order to make sure that the credits will be counted for their specific state and type of license.
