Lyons-Ruth, Karlen; And Others
New Directions for Child Development, n34 p61-82 Win 1986

Depressed mothers are more likely than nondepressed mothers to show hostile and intrusive behavior toward their infants, and infants of depressed mothers are more likely to exhibit slowed development and unstable avoidance attachment behaviors.
