If you are frustrated with youth disrupting multiple placements or feel like we are putting a "Band-Aid" on the issues without creating real healing and change, remember:

You Have a Choice

You can continue what's been done or try a new approach with Anu Family Services. All of the services offered at Anu are based on these beliefs:

  • Losses must be grieved:  Otherwise, youth will continue to act out the loss through pain-based behaviors (i.e., AWOL, substance abuse, aggression).
  • All behavior is communication: Our job as caregivers is to listen and understand the root cause of those pain-based behaviors.
  • Disconnecting is a protective response:  Healing the relational trauma caused by loss is crucial for the youth to connect because healthy brains become unable to connect with others after multiple losses.
  • Reconnecting is healing:  Relational trauma can only be healed in the context of a relationship, so we safely reconnect youth with people (and even pets) that they have loved and lost.
  • Pain-based behaviors are not willful:  Youth demonstrate normal responses to grief and trauma.  We help them heal, rather than shame or blame.  We give them the words to talk about their pain.
