This ecomap is exclusively designed for couples to help them visually represent their social relationships. It is commonly used in couple therapy sessions by counselors for assessing the quality of the relationship a couple shares with people from and outside their families. With the help of this ecomap, the strong, weak, and strenuous relationships a couple shares with people in their surroundings can be effectively analyzed.
At the center of the ecomap will be the couple's name, and the surrounding circles will accommodate their relationships. Many different types of lines, like thick, thin, curvy, etc., can be used for demonstrating the type of relationship the couple has with the people included in the map. Symbols like arrows can also be used to better demonstrate the influence or flow of the relationship.
