Counselling Services Surviving abuse positively Surviving abuse positively (SAP) Sexual abuse is a crime, no matter who commits it where or when it happened. *It is estimated that 80% of incidents are unreported and fewer than 28% of victims report their experience to the police. For many victims and survivors, it can take many years for that individual to disclose sexual abuse or assault particularly for those people who have been abused or assaulted as a child.
