Abstract

"An eco-map is a graphic representation or visualization of the family and linkages to the larger social system including informal and formal supports. It illustrates how families exist within the context of their relationships with other individuals and institutions with which the family has contact. Utilizing an ecological model, the eco-map provides a visual display of any group of interconnections and relationships, providing a graphic image of the family system within the larger social matrix."
