We welcome requests to administer this scale. Kindly email me (sgrace@yorku.ca).

If you wish to translate the scale to another language: There are best practices for translation, cross-cultural adaptation and validation that should be used. I could point you to some resources if requested. Ultimately, I could post your translation to my website as well, giving you credit, in case others wish to use it.
