The Measurement of Nonviolence.
Mayton, Daniel M., II; Palmer, B. James
This paper reviews the assessment measures developed to recognize nonviolent dispositions. Based on computer searches of the Psychological Abstracts (PsychLit) database, the document identifies the best measures for assessing nonviolence such as: (1) The Nonviolence Test developed by Kool and Sen (1984); (2) the Gandhian Personality Scale developed by Hasan and Khan (1983); and (3) the pacifism scales developed by Elliott (1980). Each assessment measure possesses certain limitations and/or is only appropriate for adults. The review concludes with recommendations for the development of new instruments for use with children and adolescents which incorporate the philosophy of Gandhi and current theory of aggressive behavior.
