    In the theoretical part of this diploma thesis, defense mechanisms, being used throughout whole life and being one of the key techniques of stress confronting, are defined in detail. In the thesis defense mechanism triggers are introduced, together with their definition and categorisation, and some individual defense mechanism, as well as the role of defense mechanisms in counselling and their evaluation, are described. Following is a short presentation of other means of stress handling and a presentation of cowork and coworking community KIKštarter as one of the stress handling strategies, that is to say, seeking for help within the community. In the empirical research, which was carried out in one of the KIKštarter's coworking communities among 20 permanent residents, it had been investigated how the KIKštarter residents experience stress, the use of defense mechanisms and the expected help from the KIKštarter and other residents. The results suggest that the residents use mainly a group of mature defense mechanisms according to DSQ-40, while of individual defense mechanisms they use mainly humour. The residents are dealing with various stressful situations, naming the late-payment culture of the customers as one of the most stressful one. According to most of their reference, they expect help in the form of professional consulting, mainly in the field of entrepreneurship. The residents help each other by experience and information sharing and by debating about their problems, they hang out at joint meetings, while some of them even do business together
