Guide and Best Practices

An ecomap is a popular social work assessment tool that is used to visualize the social and personal relationships an individual (or family) has with his or her environment.

How to make an ecomap

  • You can create an ecomap yourself based on the interviews and research you have done on your client, or you can allow your client to draw it on their own.
  • You can start with a Creately pre-made ecomap template. Or you can create it 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.
  • Start by drawing a circle in the middle of the canvas. This is where you should list down the name of the individual.
  • However 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.
