Her research centers on interpersonal victimization, especially intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and dating violence among Latines.

Dr. Sabina has received grants from the Fulbright Scholar Program, National Institute of Justice, Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, Vision of Hope, and National Sexual Violence Resource Center to conduct her work on Latine victimization, victim needs, violence prevention, domestic violence services, and culturally-informed services. Dr. Sabina is Senior Consulting Editor for Psychology of Violence, co-Chair of the Research Advisory Board of Esperanza United, and an American Psychological Association Fellow.
