Problem1. A 17-year-old girl appears in office of counsellor, grossly underweight. Despite this, she denies having any problems other than being gently depressed, and she hasn’t come to the office willingly. She views herself as overweight despite obvious appearances to the divergent. Her parents note that she has increasingly restricted her intake of calories and exercises excessively. She has been amenorrheic (absence of at least 3 consecutive menstrual cycles for earlier many months).

Problem2. Children frequently don’t tell us with words that they have been sexually abused or that they have successfully resisted an assault and don’t know what to do next. There are many reasons children may hesitate or be afraid to tell us about what has happened, including their relationships to the offender, fear of the results, retaliation or uncertainty about whether or not they will be believed. Hence, counsellors and teachers very frequently have to observe behavioural or physical changes in the children as indicators that there may have been a sexual assault.
