    Studies have documented that school bullying victimization (SBV) aroused by negative interpersonal relationships can lead victims to show more depressive symptoms than those who are not bullied, but few studies have explored the relationship among the three variables from a cumulative interpersonal relationship risk (CIRR) perspective and examined how to reduce the negative chain reactions aroused by CIRR from a positive psychological perspective. The present research explored the protective mechanisms of resilience in the relations among CIRR, SBV and depression and tested 2 serial mediation models for the relationships. Self-report data were collected from 742 middle school students (48.38% male) in grades 7-11 (mean age = 14.32 years, SD =1.54 years). The results supported both models. CIRR could increase SBV by decreasing resilience and, therefore, improve a victim’s depressive level. Alternatively, CIRR could also directly increase SBV and further improve depressive level by decreasing resilience. Our results shed light on the idea that it is a good suggestion to decrease SBV and depression that follow multiple interpersonal relationship risk exposures by cultivating adolescence resilience if we cannot reach the goal by decreasing multiple interpersonal relationship risk at the same time.
