A Temple Sinai Program: Helping To Stop Abuse During COVID
Part 1 Emotionally Close While Physically Distant
Tuesdays, April 20 and 27 at 7.00 p.m.
Temple Sinai will be presenting two webinars to address the alarming
increase in child abuse, elder abuse, and abuse of women during COVID.

Temple member and clinical psychologist, Dr. Rickey Miller, and Ellen, a social worker with the Jewish Family and Child Service, will present practical strategies that friends, relatives, and neighbours can employ to help victims of abuse. They will also discuss how those in abusive situations can reach out for assistance.

Dr. Rickey Miller is a clinical psychologist who has been in private practice in Thornhill since 1990. She obtained her Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo in 1980. Dr. Miller has forty years of experience providing treatment to a wide variety of patients, including many who have survived abuse. Dr. Miller has had numerous media appearances and has offered many workshops to physicians and other healthcare professionals.

Ellen, M.S.W., RSW, is a social worker who has been providing a wide range of services to clients at Jewish Family & Child Service for the past thirty years. For the past twelve years, Ellen’s specialty and passion has been working as a domestic violence team member assisting women who have experienced intimate partner violence. This has included providing clients with crisis intervention, safety planning, individual counselling and group therapy, and connection to other resources and partner agencies to ensure the best
outcomes.
