[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose:  The purpose of this study is to explore the relationships and effects among the variables, including personal beliefs, resourcefulness, and adaptive functioning in Taiwanese depressed adults. 
Methods:  A cross-sectional design with correlational approach was applied to determine the relationships and effects among personal beliefs, resourcefulness, and adaptive functioning in Taiwanese depressed adults. 
Results:  Depressed patients? personal beliefs were highly and positively correlated with resourcefulness (r=.59, p<.001), and adaptive functioning (r=.72, p<.001).  Resourcefulness was also found to have a positive relationship with adaptive functioning (r=.59, p<.001) in the depressed adults. Additionally, personal beliefs (t=5.64, ?=.48, p<.001) and resourcefulness (t=4.10, ?=.26, p<.001) were found as important predictors of adaptive functioning in the depressed adults in southern Taiwan.
Conclusion:  The findings inform future health promotion behavior research by demonstrating positive effects of personal beliefs and resourceful behaviors on improving daily functioning of depressed adults and provide direction for the development interventions that constituting positive personal beliefs or resourcefulness to depressed adults in clinical and community settings.
