Based on a qualitative design method, where eight persons were interviewed, factors such as questionnaires and guided interviews were applied. The study showed, based on a critical analysis of the results, that the most predominant types of defensive strategies are the rationalization of working relations, the denial of their own feelings, the insignificance, given by the organization, towards precarious working conditions and the silence and flee upon this aspects.
