This ecomap for family relationships is commonly used in professional medical settings for analyzing the quality of social connections a family has with people in their surroundings. The graphical representation of the relationships makes it easier for counselors and medical professionals to clearly understand the quality of a family's social life and helps create the case plan.
The center of the ecomap is where the name of the family should be entered. All the circles surrounding the center can accommodate different people, like Brother, Sister, Children, Spouse, School/High, Work, School, etc. All these people can be linked to the family with the help of different symbols and lines to demonstrate the quality of their connections.
