Workshops

workshopsandprogrammesViolent tendencies and anti-social behaviorism is not the natural nature of man, although it may seem so when looking at the world around us. This cloud of illusion that is destroying our community, creating devastation as it passes is destructive to all. The reality is that there are underlying factors that need to be addressed in everyone, some more than others. Although some situations may appear similar on the surface, the core issue will differ and therefore the approach to addressing anti-social behavioural patterns and or a lack of direction regards to walking the right path should be addressed with individualism in mind.

Stephen Graham offers a variety of workshops ranging from one day to extensive periods. Stephen not only believes but also through personal experience knows that violent crime and antisocial behavior have a detrimental effect on individuals, friends, family and the greater community. Therefore Stephen’s aim via his workshops is to tackle the psychological, physiological and emotional issues that trigger these negative actions.

Through his workshops Stephen aims to instill the energies that create positive change, which benefit self and others. Click to see workshop aims and objectives.

I Am: The Project

7 weeks intense workshop covering crime and consequences in a very unique way. The workshop is a PowerPoint presentation based on the novel written by Stephen titled I’m a Gun. The workshop analyses the perceptions of life through the eyes of those on the streets, the many factors that lead to trauma and anti-social behaviour and its effects, street culture and violent crime on individuals, families, relationships, and communities. This workshop gives an in-depth physiological and psychological look into street culture.

I’m a Gun: The Documentary (1hr) screening

The participants will watch the documentary, then with Stephen, they will discuss the issues currently faced and solutions. This section of the workshop is very interactive.

Below are a few testimonials

“His insightful documentary on the causes of violent youth crime and its solutions served as a basis for an interesting academic debate for the students who attended the event, and for members of the wider local community, the documentary stimulated discussions around appropriate interventions. Stephen’s knowledge around these issues and his personal story has been inspirational to those who attended and I would therefore strongly recommend his services to educational institutions and community groups alike.”

“Brent youth and connexions service In Partnership with Stephen Graham hosted a familiar event called ‘Im a gun’ in the Stonebridge area in Brent. It engaged many young people in the community as well as parents and carers. Much positive feedback was given from the MP Dawn Butler and the leader of the council Mohammed Butt. More events like these are definitely needed and the youth services will continue to support Stephen Graham where possible.”

“Stephen Graham has worked with Catalyst Gateway on a number of successful programmes. We have supported Stephen in his delivery in the anti-youth violence workshops I’m a Gun and the showing of the documentary to the local youth community. I would certainly recommend Stephen Graham to anyone considering working with him. He is a positive influence on young people who look-up at him as a role model. Stephen is both informative and inspirational.”
