Through initial training courses, long-term support schemes or analysis of practices’ groups (Balint-type), Mist helps professionals, social workers and peer helpers to understand complex situations, access rights (asylum, justice, child protection, reparation, etc.) and manage the professional difficulties inherent in helping people and dealing with trauma.

Initial training and continued training on request.

A place for training and innovation in peer education and collective mobilization

Mist supports victims of trafficking and pimping who wish to take part in the fight against these phenomena, either on a voluntary or salaried basis, within the framework of expertise activities (feedback, diagnosis, recommendations) or assistance to other victims (awareness-raising, information, access to rights, discussion groups). Members receive support and training as part of an individualized program.

Mist is a place for collective mobilization. Members participate in the development of a participative model in partnership with the association “Organisez-vous”. Through trainings and workshops, the association is developing a methodology and an expertise dedicated to participatory action applied to the fight against trafficking.
