This dissertation provides first evidence that NVR-MID may be an effective method that could be implemented on a larger scale into residential youth care settings for juveniles with MID, in order to enhance group climate and diminish aggressive incidents. Furthermore, it might have an influence on enhancing the team-spirit and belonging together in the case of working staff. The original NVR method was based on the philosophy, inspired by Gandhi and Martin Luther King jr., of enhancing the WE-feeling and the resistance against violence and unacceptable behaviour in order to create more positivity and collaboration. This philosophy has now been translated into the practice of residential settings for youth with MID and it seems to pay off. Violence should not be answered with more violence but instead with Non-Violent resistance.
