Book cover of The Least You Should Know about Therapy

The Least You Should Know about Therapy highlights an alarming trend in how therapists are trained in many modern programs. Dr. Olson’s observations are based on an extensive review of relevant literature and client stories that show how the credibility of psychotherapy is coming into question as more and more people lose trust. The Least You Should Know about Therapy is a roadmap that leads psychologists, social workers, and counselors back to what truly matters-the therapeutic relationship and genuine understanding.

Mental health professionals at any stage of their careers can benefit from the lessons in The Least You Should Know about Therapy. Instead of using scripted responses that can cause clients to feel invalidated and unheard, Dr. Olson demonstrates how lasting long-term change is driven by interpersonal connection, communication, and genuine insights based on a client’s unique situation.

Furthermore, this book includes exercises and worksheets to help readers internalize key learnings. For instance, the Relational Chart® breaks down complex topics into a digestible format and shows how different variables intersect.

In a time of social upset when many people are turning to therapy for the first time, Dr. Olson’s work is a potent reminder that evidence-based practices or what insurance companies believe is right isn’t always what’s best for the client. When clients feel valued, therapy can be a life-saving intervention, and The Least You Should Know about Therapy sets out to prove it.

The Least You Should Know about Therapy is available for purchase on or wherever books are sold.
