Holiday gift ideas for your colleagues and other therapists in your life
Let’s celebrate the holidays! We’re listing some of our favorite gifts to give to your colleagues and other therapists in your life.
This holiday season looks very different this year with fewer and smaller holiday gatherings. That doesn’t mean you can’t give thoughtful gifts to those you care about. In this post, we’re listing some of our favorite gifts to give to your colleagues and other therapists in your life.
A deck of cards to improve communication
We could all use a little help when it comes to strengthening our communication skills. Hushmail partner Rob Reinhardt, LPCS, created the therapist aid Describe Cards to help clients of all ages better communicate their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
It starts with the first deck of 106 cards. Each card has an adjective and three conversation prompting questions. The cards help break the ice and get people talking. While facilitating a great time, Describe eases the process of communicating challenging content.
Describe has grown to include a second deck, a dry erase activity board, and dozens of activities and games for all ages. Describe – All The Things includes all products in a gift box.
A DIY guide to review and fix your website
Know someone who could use some help with their website? Hushmail partner Kat Love is an expert when it comes to how to build a therapist website that attracts best-fit clients. She understands that running a website for your practice can be stressful. Figuring out images, content, and navigation can feel overwhelming. That’s why she provides a perfect do-it-yourself solution for anyone who wants to improve their website but isn’t sure where to start.
- Saves hours of researching what works
- Provides clarity on how a website’s doing
- Facilitates understanding of the “why” behind website best practices
1 legal - ethical CE credit hour
Add continuing education credits while gaining a better understanding of the legality and ethics of teletherapy. Roy Huggins, LPC, NCC, and Liath Dalton from Person Centered Tech walk therapists through how to navigate teletherapy in a transitional space, like a mobile office or a home, and all of the HIPAA, ethical, and standard of care issues that come along with such a practice.
- Securing a stable Internet connection
- Navigating a home or mobile office
- Protecting PHI on your devices
A step-by-step guide to conducting a risk assessment
Give the gift of peace of mind. Therapists spent the summer getting their practices to run smoothly online during the pandemic. Now that they’re up and running, it’s a good idea to conduct a thorough risk assessment to make sure everything is secure.
Conducting a risk assessment might sound intimidating, but anyone can do it quickly and effectively with a little guidance. To understand more about what it means to conduct a risk assessment, read our recent blog post Is your new virtual practice secure? Conduct a risk assessment.
We’ve made the process as easy as possible with a step-by-step guide you can download to give to anyone you feel could use the gift of a little extra peace of mind.
A complete intake form
Web forms go a long way toward making a practice more efficient and secure. A secure contact form can help find best-fit clients, a COVID-19 screening questionnaire can help you keep a practice safe, and a client experience survey can help a practice gauge its effectiveness. Our web forms are extremely versatile and can be created to serve multiple purposes while keeping clients’ information safe and secure.
Our web form builder is easy to use, but sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Do you know a therapist who’s too busy to build their web forms? Is that person you? Hushmail has a web form building service that can help.
Give the gift of custom web forms that are ready to go. Contact Customer Care and tell them who you’d like to help out, and we’ll apply a $50 credit toward web form building to their account. This is usually enough to build one 1-2 page form. You can give this gift to yourself too!
Need secure email and e-signable forms?
This holiday season looks very different this year with fewer and smaller holiday gatherings. That doesn’t mean you can’t give thoughtful gifts to those you care about. A deck of cards to improve communication, a DIY guide to review and fix your website, 1 legal - ethical CE credit hour, a step-by-step guide to conducting a risk assessment, and a complete intake form are all great last minute holiday gift ideas for your colleagues and other therapists in your life.
