La psicopatologia, di uno o di entrambi i partner, può essere considerata un fattore di vulnerabilità che incide sulla capacità della coppia di gestire le esperienze stressanti e può interferire con le funzioni di caregiving. In particolare, la depressione esperita durante la gravidanza e l’eventuale depressione del partner sono fattori che aumentano la probabilità sia nella madre sia nel padre di dar luogo a modalità relazionali imprevedibili e incoerenti nella comunicazione emotiva con il proprio bambino. Alla luce dei dati che mettono in relazione il comportamento materno disattento e distaccato e il comportamento intrusivo e rifiutante con la depressione materna, ci sono buone ragioni per ipotizzare che i figli di madri depresse abbiano una maggiore probabilità di sviluppare un attaccamento insicuro e di manifestare disturbi del comportamento e sintomi depressivi. In questa relazione interattiva quale funzione svolge il padre? Il ruolo paterno è un potenziale fattore protettivo, all’interno del sistema padre-madre-bambino? Lo scopo di questa rassegna è quello di delineare lo stato dell’arte relativo allo studio della depressione materna come fattore di rischio per lo sviluppo delle competenze genitoriali ed evidenziare il ruolo paterno nella relazione madre-bambino, con una funzione protettiva rispetto ai rischi della depressione materna.
