Link Between Domestic Violence and Child Abuse
Awareness of the correlation between domestic violence and child abuse has grown because of recent high-profile cases in the media. This attention highlights the effects domestic violence can have on families and children.
According to the Virginia Department of Social Services, as many as 3 million children witness domestic violence each year nationwide. In families where domestic violence occurs, child abuse is 15 times more likely to occur.
Caretakers often believe they are protecting their children from witnessing abuse within the home, however 80%-90% of children in homes where domestic violence occurs, can provide detailed accounts of the violence.

During the Spring of 2014, SCAN's Circle Preschool staff along with SCAN Executive Director Jeanine Harper began meeting with Henrico County Newbridge Learning Center staff to discuss the expansion of the Therapeutic Preschool model.
Over the summer, staff from The Circle Preschool observed at the Newbridge Learning Center, consulted regarding potential changes, and provided extensive training for Henrico County Newbridge Learning Center newly hired staff.
To provide assistance developing the first therapeutic preschool model in public schools in this area, Kathy Ryan, Circle Preschool Clinical Coordinator, and Denise Powers, Program Director & Early Childhood Specialist, provided 20 hours of training to Henrico County Newbridge Learning Center staff members. In addition, Henrico County Newbridge Learning Center staff observed the Circle Preschool for 20 hours.
