Considering creativity and resilience as important personal characteristics which, combined, could be used as resources by the individual to search for more effective responses and best adapted solutions in the presence of an unfavorable environment, this study aimed to conduct a survey of the researches that focused on the relationship between the two constructs in two important databases. Seven articles were found, published between 2005 and 2008, three developed by national researchers and four by international researchers. Researches focus mainly students, inasmuch as the instruments used are not validated for use in the population. Due to the small number of studies on the subject, many gaps are still present and deserve to be investigated in further studies.
