Dr. Myers already made the main points here. Yet I'd like to add that I would be very interested in criterion referenced validity for thinking model of cluttering we are working from now. It is a "moving target" that needs to adapt to new scientific information as it becomes available. We have taken the position in our work on developing the CSI that we can't wait until the profession is completed with this process. There is the immediate need to measure how strongly clients need help for their cluttering problem, how effective therapy is and more. I am not totally sure what you meant for a reference guide, but I imagine it would be something like a description of the diagnostic classification which is sorely needed. There are tentative guides like the brochure made available for the International Cluttering Association (there is a button for this on the very homepage of the website, wich access to several languages).
