We welcome requests to administer this scale; Kindly email me (sgrace@yorku.ca). Please cite the above when using it. I am happy to help too (including efforts to mitigate identified clinician-level barriers), as requested.

If you wish to translate the scale to another language: There may be translations available or others working on translations, and I could put you in touch. If not, 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 this website as well, giving you credit if you agree, in case others wish to use and cite it.
