By commenting on the article by Cannalire, the author gives examples of several common elements between Freudian psychodrama and Gestalt therapy, such as the ideologicepistemological ground which he considers as the basis of relational vision of identity and group therapy approach that focuses on the boundaries dividing/joining participants in a phenomenological field. Other common elements can be seen in the experience as an instrument of awareness and change, and in restoring organismic spontaneity with wellness target. The theoretical and methodological differences identified by the author (the family or the pòlis as group prototype, contact identifying and/or projective processes, the temporal dimension of experience, the past which re-actualizes or the focus on "now-for-next", repetition or co-creation) give the reader a key to understanding the unique nature of these two therapeutic approaches.
Keywords: Psychodrama, Gestalt therapy, therapeutic goal, relationship, contact, identification.
