The ecological paradigm has been suggesting the use of an ecomap as a tool for investigating the nature of close relationships in individuals, couples, and families. A review of the literature reveals several attempts made in this direction worth knowledge and discussion. Originally developed as a clinical assessment tool for processing idiographic information (Colesso & Cusinato, 2009; Cusinato & Colesso, 2009), the RC-Ecomap in this study is proposed as a tool for analyzing homothetic data and planning interventions on small groups. Its psychometric properties and peculiarities were tested on a sample of 166 participants allow to point out psychometric properties and its evaluation peculiarities.
