Millions of female children, adolescents, and young adults from all socioeconomic segments of society will experience physical or sexual violence perpetrated by someone close to them at some point in their lives. Knowledge of risk factors and sequelae associated with interpersonal violence, and of specific screening tools and procedures designed to detect violence, can help clinicians identify potential victims of assault. Careful management and referral of victims is critical. The use of anticipatory guidance to prevent physical and sexual violence is also advised.
