Jakarta, June 12th, 2021 – KALM held a workshop with the theme ‘Support System: Jurus Kilat Jadi Teman Curhat’. This event was enthusiastically welcomed by KALMers as evidenced by the presence of more than 60 participants. In the event was held for approximately 2 and a half hours, the workshop materials were directly delivered by the Co-Founder of KALM, Karina Negara and Kalmselor Wenny Aidina who also served as a Kalmselor Coordinator in KALM.
There are a lot of materials presented in this event, such as the principles of being a good listener, the emotional support you can give your friends, our boundaries and limitations as a listener, to the different problems that a listener will often face.
A Common Mistake
One of our mistakes as listeners is that sometimes we don’t really listen to understand other people’s stories but listen while uncomfortably thinking, ‘How should I respond to it?'” said Karina Negara.
“In fact, if you listen to other people’s story, it should be processed by us first, don’t answer spontaneously. This is to avoid getting the wrong answer and the wrong judgement,” added Kalmselor Wenny – one of many KALM’s most trusted Kalmselor.

Practicing Skills as a Listener
Beside the lessons/materials, this workshop also allows KALMers to practice skills of being a good listener just like a professional. Some of the skills learned include skills for recognizing emotions, being an active listener, and practicing in real situations.
This workshop received very positive feedback from KALMers. According to KALMers, this event was very helpful, meaningful, interactive, useful, interesting, informative, fun, lots of new lessons, good for sharpening skills. Whoa! Thanks for joining us KALMers!
