Significance of “Jeong” in Korean Culture and Psychotherapy

  title={Significance of “Jeong” in Korean Culture and Psychotherapy},
  author={C. Chung and S. Cho},
Practicing in Los Angeles, California, I began to be aware of the differences in patterns of decision-making and of psychopathology among Asian Americans, especially within the KoreanAmerican population. Working on their interpersonal problems, hwa-byung cases, and issues of marital discord, I began to realize the importance of understanding culture-specific emotions, i.e., jeong, haan, etc., in the psychotherapeutic setting.
