Management by Körper - Körpersprache Bioenergetik Stressbewältigung
Author: Ulrich Sollmann
Stress management and regeneration are basic human requirements, which help to be successful under the intense demands of daily life and of the straining job. At the same time they help to feel personally relaxed and inspired. All this is based on the careful and specific analysis of one´s own stress-profile. The author points out: • Stress in daily life and the function of stress, • A stress-modell as melange of personality, patterns of behaviour and the influence of the setting, • The bioenergetic approach to analyse and to understand the personal stress-profile, • A unique concept of exercises which are mostly based on the bioenergetic analysis of Alexander Lowen ( more than 150 excercises, most of them are illustrated by photos ). 1. Gymnastics for the soul: ( 14 pages ) 2. Bioenergetics: ( 123 pages ) 3. Stress-Modell: ( 18 pages ) 4. Expression of the body and personality: ( 13 pages ) 5. Stress-profile and bodylanguage: ( 43 pages )
Sollmann’s book “Media Scenario of politicians” – Body-language of politicians” is the first book in German related to the interplay of media-scenario and the politician as person with his behaviour pattern. Sollmann does a deep, sensitive and professional analysis of each member of the German government related to the media-scenario and the person’s body-language and his behaviour-patterns.
Sollmann’s book „Begierige Verbote“ is related to sexual abuse, Body-Psychotherapy and shame in relationship. It offers a very personal insight into what happens in a body-psychotherapy session which is characterized by concepts and practice of the Bioenergetic Analysis. He relates to the clients, he relates to what body-psychotherapy is and how it works and he relates to himself as a therapist and his personal experience as a person and related to the transference-level. It’s a very sensitive book which really respects, and which shows how important it is to respect the damaged and painful souls and bodies of people. It is remarkable insofar as it is the first book in German language where a bioenergetic therapist opens up himself so much in the way how he himself is involved in the process of therapy, in how far he is touched especially on the body level and how client and therapist encounter on the body level always being in touch with shame and its function.
Sollmann’s book „Words are a mask” is the first book published in German that relates to the issue of men’s identity and intimacy. Sollmann shows a deep and very specific insight in the field of male experience, male relationships, male’s body, men in body-psychotherapy and men in daily life, in family and in the job. At the same time the book is a very personal approach to the issue.
This is the practical book related to Alexander Lowen’s book “Bioenergetics”. Ulrich Sollmann was asked to give an introduction into the field of self-awareness, self-regulation as personal experience and development on the base of Bioenergetic Exercises. Sollmann’s book is a very important and helpful supplement and counterpart to Lowen’s book.
This is the first book on Bioenergetic Analysis in German where you’ll find unique and very specific articles of the founder generation of Bioenergetic Analysis. Ulrich Sollmann knows all of them and has brought these colleagues together in order to ground scientifically the Bioenergetic Analysis by case studies and working concepts already more than 35 years ago.

According to the bioenergetic concepts everything that happens in the human psyche expresses itself in the body. That means it happens with biological, chemical and physiological processes and it can be influenced by physical interventions. If this theory is true then these processes must be described in biological categories and must comply with them. This paper tries to describe Bioenergetic Analysis from the biological point of view. The biological processes are seen as the base, as the grounding of bioenergetic concepts. The biological processes are not described in detail but somewhat like a blueprint to understand a little bit more what is going on in body psychotherapeutic work.

Abstract: This is my first effort to describe the concept of Bioenergetic Analysis with ideas and concepts of modern physics, biology and physiology. This seems being necessary for Bioenergetic Analysis uses terms of these sciences to describe bodily processes and shows how to modify them. But how they are used is not corresponding to their scientific definition. It is not described what is really going on in the body itself. I focused on the term of 'energy'. I try to show how this point of view is able to develop further the bioenergetic concept. With some ideas of energy from subatomatic level perhaps you can explain with physical and bodily categories the meaing of 'relationship', 'intuition', 'nonverbal communication'. Processes of transference and countertransference will get a 'physical' body. The unity of body, soul and mind will find a new base by the term of 'energy'. The energetic processes on the subatomatic level shows structures similar to those of the mental and psychic ones.
