The project is also testing a multicomponent intervention to address stress and related health issues among survivors of cumulative trauma. Dr. Sabri’s research interests include: lifetime exposures to violence and stress and related health inequities, role of physiological stress responses in coping and adaptation to traumatic life events, and biopsychosocial approach to development of trauma informed culturally tailored interventions for at-risk populations from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds.
