New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) is seeking a vendor to provide and implement software that would enable caseworkers to create genograms and ecomaps for their casework practice. For many years, NYC’s Administration for Children’s Services has been interested in and in need of software that would enable caseworkers to create genograms and ecomaps for their casework practice, as various models and trainings support the use of mapping and the Division of Child Protection (DCP) intends to mandate the use of mapping in DCP field offices. New York State’s Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS) Supervisory training, the OCFS Family Assessment Response (FAR) model, and the Solution Based Casework practice model all require and support the incorporation of genograms and ecomaps for effective casework. The ability to map family dynamics through construction of genograms and ecomaps is expected to provide high level benefits to the Agency, some of which include:

• providing an additional assessment tool
• enabling a standard method and efficient organization of perceptions or information amassed from family members or collaterals
• helping to identify gaps—what ACS does know or does not know about the family
• maintaining a systems perspective by focusing on the family, rather than on one member
• prompting ideas about interventions
• eliciting information (when constructed with the family) that facilitates engagement of the family, and allows joint caseworker/family insights.
