Abstract: This paper develops a new diagrammatic spiritual assessment tool, the spiritual ecomap, for use I with individuals, couples, and families. While a genogram portrays a family's history over time, a spiritual ecomap provides a valuable supplement by depicting a family's current relationships to critical ecological systems bl space. The spiritual ecomap is based upon an anthropological framework conceptualized in the spiritual formation tradition and can be used with families from diverse spiritual traditions. I use a case study to familiarize the render with the instrument and offer suggestions for its application.
