Preparing: MAP

Used in the Prepare step, the MAP tool is extremely simple, which is an advantage when time is short and the situation is complex. The tool is effective not only for organising client encounters but also for many other tasks, and it can be used either when working alone or in collaboration with others.

In addition, MAP may serve as a front end to other tools, in which case the latter plug into its Plan part. This is an example of the complementary nature of the items in the Toolkit ‐ a feature that reduces its overall complexity.
