I have written this to protect the work that I put out into the world. If you have any questions after reading this, please contact me and I will happily answer any question you have :)

Personal or Professional Use in Blog Posts

I am always flattered when people use my work to enhance their own personal or professional products. Should you use my work, I would much appreciate being cited as the original content creator.

Example 1:

Ignacio Pacheco is a social work professional that uses technology tools like the iPad in social work practice (http://socialworktech.com/).

Example 1:

Social Work Tech (http://socialworktech.com) provides social work professionals with guidance on using technology tools, like the iPad, in social work practice.

You will find examples of this type of citation in many of  my articles.

Use of Graphics in all Contexts

I work very hard on making my graphics, which I make available to promote my written work.

You may use images or graphics downloaded from Social Work Tech in your work under the following conditions:

  1. You may download images and put them on your server (e.g. WordPress, Tumblr account) on the condition that you must link the image URL to the original page or article post on Social Work Tech.
  2. You may not link my image to any other website or resource unless it is a site related to Social Work Tech (e.g. Social Work Tech’s Tumblr Page).
  3. You may not alter or remove the “Social Work Tech” or “Social Work Tech Blog” logos.
  4. You may not use my images to sell a product, worshop, etc..
  5. You may not sell my images.

I do not object to my work being put on Pinterest, as the graphic generated by the site will link back to my website.

Use of Materials in all Contexts

I work very hard on making my materials, which includes handouts, interventions, etc. in various formats that include but are not limited to PDF, PNG, and JPG.

You may use materials downloaded from Social Work Tech (e.g. PDFs, PNGs, JPGs) in your work under the following conditions:

  1. You may not put any of my materials on your server.
  2. If you are encouraging people to use a free intervention that I provide on my website, you may link to the article (not the direct link to the file, e.g. PDF) from where they can download the intervention.
  3. You may not alter or remove the “Social Work Tech” or “Social Work Tech Blog” logos.
  4. You may utilize an intervention I created (e.g. my Self-Care Plan) in a classroom, group, workshop, or presentation on condition that you please do not alter or remove the “Social Work Tech” logo.
  5. You may not use my materials to sell a product, workshop, personal development course, etc.

Academic Citation

While my work is intended to be informative, based on scholarly and empirically-validated social work practice, should you wish to use any my work for your papers, here is a quick guide to cite in APA format.

Per the American Psychological Association: For a passing reference to this website in text, the URL is sufficient; no reference list entry is needed.

Ignacio Pacheco is a social work professional that uses technology tools like the iPad in social work practice (http://socialworktech.com/).

However, when you are citing a particular document or piece of information from a website, include both a reference list entry and an in-text citation. The key to creating the reference list entry is to determine the type of content on the web page. Basically, provide the following four pieces of information:

Pacheco, I. (2013 [or year that blog post was published]). Title of blog article [Web Page]. Retrieved from http://socialworktech.com/[link to blog article].

The in-text citation includes the author and date (Author, date), as with any other APA Style citation
