NICE Guideline NG216 - Social work with adults experiencing complex needs

Debriefing after a distressing or safety-related incident involves the social worker having an opportunity to speak to a manager or senior colleague as soon as possible after the incident. This can be used, for example, to acknowledge the difficult situation and look into any support the social worker needs, including psychological support or counselling. This could start a reflective process to identify any lessons or ways to improve practice in future.
