The MCEC Living in the New Normal (LINN) Practicum encourages families to
ensure their children have tools to bounce back from life's storms, and
"stressors", fosters community support efforts, and provides concerned
adults with information to help support children during times of
uncertainty, trauma, and loss. The MCEC's LINN efforts are predicated on the
belief that children's inherent attributes of courage and resiliency can be
strengthened through deliberate encouragement.
