<font face="HY중고딕" size="2">As in the case of other psychiatric disorders, hwabyung should be treated in an integrated way, by combining psychosocial therapy, including psychoanalytic therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy, and drug therapy. It is also necessary for psychiatrists to enrich their treatment strategies by borrowing from traditional healing methods and religious healing methods. Few clinical studies have been performed on its prognosis, however it seems to be a chronic illness.





Conclusion

</font>
<span lang="EN-US"><font size="2" face="HY태고딕">:</font></span>

<font face="HY중고딕" size="2">Further research is needed for the purpose of conceptualizing this anger disorder, based on studies of both hwabyung itself and other clinical syndromes related to subjective anger.
