The literature detailing the effects of growing up with a parent with depression is extensive, and there is a burgeoning body of literature delineating processes of resilience in at-risk children. Both of these fields are summarised here, before a more in-depth examination of studies which have brought these two areas together. Only a limited number of studies have explored resilience in offspring of depressed parents. These studies have focused on coping, on factors that aid resilience and on preventive interventions designed to promote resilience. Relevant factors have emerged from this review but less is understood about the processes that underlie resilience. Further research is needed to increase our understanding of both why and how some offspring of depressed parents show positive adaptation despite being at risk.
