Vulnerability has increasingly become the organizing construct around which much research in psychopathology is organized. This is particularly the case for depression, where researchers have begun to focus considerable attention on the variables that may predispose some individuals to this disorder. Much of this attention has been directed toward understanding the origins of these presumed vulnerability processes. In line with this interest, vulnerability origins stemming from schema models… 
COGNITIVE VULNERABILITY TO PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDERS: OVERVIEW OF THEORY, DESIGN, AND METHODS
Cognitive vulnerability models offer popular ways of understanding the origins and causal factors that contribute to psychological problems. Cognitive vulnerabilities are typically purported to
The importance of parental socialization and Early Maladaptive Schemas in the development and maintenance of psychological symptoms in young adults
Cognitive theory of emotional disorders suggests that negative schemas leads to the development of a variety of emotional disorders. A.T. Beck (1967) called this maladaptive pattern of thinking, the
Cognitive Vulnerabilities as Mediators between Emotional Abuse and Depressive Symptoms
TLDR
Findings suggest that the experiences of childhood emotional abuse by parents and peers serve as antecedents to develop a negative cognitive style, vulnerability that, once developed, is a risk factor for the onset of depressive symptoms in adolescence.
The developmental origins of a helplessness endophenotype in children
Research has demonstrated the link between helplessness cognitions and the development of anxiety and depression. However, there is a paucity of research on the origins of such thinking styles in
Prospective evaluation of a cognitive vulnerability-stress model for depression: the interaction of schema self-structures and negative life events.
TLDR
Cognitive organization dimensions showed moderate to high stability across the follow-up, suggesting that they may be trait-like vulnerability factors in the cognitive vulnerability-stress model of depression.

Vulnerability to depression: cognitive reactivity and parental bonding in high-risk individuals.
TLDR
Results indicated that vulnerable individuals uniquely diverted attention toward negative stimuli when they were in a negative mood, and supported the idea that cognitive variables form a pathway between troublesome parental-child/adolescent interactions and depression.

Theory and empirical research assessing the developmental precursors of depression is examined. This theory and research tends to emphasize three sets of variables that may guide the eventual
Cognitive Vulnerability to Persistent Depression
Abstract The account of cognitive vulnerability to depression offered by Beck's cognitive model is summarised. As this account currently lacks consistent empirical support, an alternative, related,
Parental representations, cognitive distortions, and mild depression
Past research has identified several possible diatheses to depression, including dysfunctional attitudes, depressotypic attributional style, and poor parental rearing. The present study examined the
Cognitive vulnerability in children at risk for depression
TLDR
Children at risk because of maternal major affective disorder, compared with children of medically ill and normal mothers, were examined for evidence of negative cognitions about themselves, and were found to have more negative self-concept, less positive self-schemas, and more negative attributional style.
Depressive Disorders: Toward a Unified Hypothesis
TLDR
This work has attempted to demonstrate that the animal models simulate some of the central features of clinical depression (for example, helplessness and object loss), thereby allowing one to rigorously investigate them from developmental, behavioral, and biochemical perspectives.
Overview of recent research in depression. Integration of ten conceptual models into a comprehensive clinical frame.
TLDR
This article is an attempt to translate data derived from psychodynamic, sociobehavioral, and neurobiologic research into a clinically meaningful framework for depression, and presents a new model, which incorporates and synthesizes findings from different schools.
Risk for psychopathology in the children of depressed mothers: a developmental model for understanding mechanisms of transmission.
TLDR
A developmentally sensitive, integrative model for understanding children's risk in relation to maternal depression is proposed and three factors that might moderate this risk are considered.
Heterogeneity of cognitive style among depressed inpatients.
TLDR
It is found that borderline personality disorder, negative family dynamics during childhood, a history of sexual abuse, and severity of depression predict cognitive styles, and it is speculated that aversive developmental events may contribute to cognitive vulnerability to depression.
Attachment, depressotypic cognitions, and dysphoria
Prior research has identified dysfunctional attitudes and depressotypic attributional style as potential cognitive vulnerabilities to depression. The origins of these cognitive vulnerabilities,
