Following a comment of Peggy Sax that some clients “bring out the best in us,” I proposed in 2011 that, furthermore, some clients do more than that, they in fact inspire us. I am sure I am not the only one to think so and decided to write up with Sam, then aged 20, and his mother, Jess, from the letters that summarized our meetings and several other meetings to confirm and review the conclusions we all reached at that time. This follows “Unsuffering,” co- authored by Julie King and David Epston, which appeared in Vol. 30, no. 1, 2011, pp. 84–96. Surely I am not the only one who has had this experience. I would certainly welcome stories with or about those who have inspired you.
