The struggle to gain meaning is an important underpinning of both existential and Gestalt psychotherapy. Identify other major components of these two approaches to psychotherapy. Compare and contrast each. After watching “The Human Dilemma,” review the position interpersonal psychotherapy takes on the medical model. Would Dr. Rollo May agree or disagree with that position? Why or why not?

Also reply to Nathaniel please in a separate paragraph please and thank you
Good day,
Two significant components or concepts between Existential psychotherapy and Gestalt therapy are Freedom and the Paroxdocical Theory of Change. Wedding states, “In existentialism, the concept of Freedom says that we are the authors of our own lives and responsible for all our decisions and that such freedom is terrifying and is always in conjunction with trepidation.” (Wedding et al., 2019, p 275 ) In Gestalt psychotherapy, the concept of the Paroxdocical theory of Change, as stated in the text, “The paradox is that the more one tries to become who one is not, the more one stays the same.” (Wedding et al., 2019, p 311 ). The paradoxical theory of Change is that you can only be who you are predetermined to be. At the same time, the freedom in existentialism seems boundless or based on your own decisions and actions.
Dr. Rollo states that he wants to “get to the depth of the human being.” With that statement, he would disagree with the medical model.
