Rose Brooks is Here For Training



Drawing upon over 40 years of expertise, Rose Brooks Center is a leader within the domestic violence movement – both within the Kansas City metro and the national domestic violence movement at-large.

Rose Brooks Center’s training center has a long history of educating Kansas City community service professionals on how to appropriately respond to and assist victims and survivors of domestic violence. In January of 2021, Rose Brooks transitioned to a completely virtual format and is now educating service providers from all over the country! Offering continuing education units (CEUs) for professionals, this service is wildly popular for organizations and individuals wishing to learn more about the barriers and trauma victims face when working to live free of domestic violence. As a matter of fact, Rose Brooks Center trainings are worth CEUs in Kansas as well as CEUs and CLEs in Missouri. Very soon, all community trainings will also be worth Missouri Law Enforcement POST.

We also understand that a domestic violence-informed community is a community which empowers, supports, and believes all victims and survivors. Go to to learn more and view all nine courses currently being offered.
