What Is an Ecomap?

An ecomap is a popular social work assessment tool that is used to visualize the social and personal relationships individuals/families have with their environment.

How to Create an Ecomap?

  • Based on the interviews and research you have done on your client, either you can create an ecomap yourself or you can allow your client to draw it on their own.
  • Select a Creately’s pre-made ecomap template or create one from scratch using the correct ecomap symbols and connections. You can invite your client to collaborate on the ecomap using a secure diagram share link as well.
  • Draw a circle in the middle of the canvas. This is where you should list down the name of the individual.If you are creating a family ecomap, represent the family members with a genogram in the middle of the circle.
  • Represent males with squares and females with circles. Write down their names and age in their representative shape.
  • Round the circle in the centre, draw some more circles to represent people, institutions, entities etc. your clients have relationships with.
  • Draw connecting lines between the external entities and your client/s. Use the various ecomap connector types to represent the quality of the relationship. Arrowheads should be added to show the direction.
  • If you wish to add your ecomap to a presentation or document you can download it as an image. If you wish to take print-outs, export it as a PDF. Using the Creately Viewer, you can also embed it in websites or blogs.
