Ecomaps are generally used in mezzo-level practice to identify and describe the nature of relationships and interactions that impact the client system. These relationships and interactions sometimes include significant others such as extended family and friends, connections to religious and educational institutions, social organizations as well as social/recreational relationships and places of employment. These are tools to help us better understand the client’s functioning within the context of the world they reside.
