Medical professionals or clinicians can use this ecomap for social relationships to analyze their patients/clients and better understand their social environment. It can be used for individuals to assess all the different relationships an individual has with family members and others outside their family. Different types of lines, thicknesses, and arrows can be used for demonstrating the quality of those relationships.
This ecomap features color-coded columns where relationships with friends, work shift foreman, counselor, college sports team, church, school, etc., can be added and connected with the help of the information available in the ecomap key. At the center of the map, a circle accommodates closer family relationships, allowing it to be used for families and their social connections as well.
