Nonviolence provides a means for conflict resolution without the negative effects of violence or aggression. Given the potential benefits of its application, several instruments have been developed to measure nonviolent dispositions. This article reviews the measures, which were identified via computer searches of the Psychological Abstracts database. The Pacifism Scale (Elliott, 1980), the Gandhian Personality Scale (Hasan & Khan, 1983), Nonviolence Test (Kool & Sen, 1984), Multidimensional Scales of Nonviolence (Johnson et al, 1998), and the Teenage Nonviolence Test (Mayton, Weedman, Sonnen, Grubb, & Hirose, 1999) were found to assess nonviolence. The review makes recommendations for the use of these measures in peace psychology research.
