An eco-map is a visual graphic that illustrates the systems in a person’s life that influence his or her behavior.
In this Assignment, you will be creating an ecomap based on Sandra Lambardino, whose story can be found attached to the original post. Read Sandra’s story, and create an ecomap based on the information provided showing Sandra as the micro (center circle).
Be sure to include all systems (influences) that affect Sandra. In addition to filling in the circles around Sandra with systems (influences), be sure to add two corresponding arrows pointing from the systems (influences) that signify the strength of the relationship (strong or weak) and the type of relationship (positive or stressful) between Sandra and each system. The goal of this basic ecomap is to illustrate how systems are affecting Sandra, however, in a more advanced ecomap, as seen in our text, you would want to display how the micro (Sandra for our map) is impacting the systems around them. If you want to show the reciprocal nature of the relationship between the influence and Sandra on your ecomap, you will show two more arrows pointing from Sandra to the system (influence) to illustrate how Sandra affects the system (influence).
Create your ecomap using the template attached to this post.
