See Judge Act

The “See-Judge-Act” method has become synonymous with Cardijn, the YCW, YCS and similar movements.

Here are nine questions developed by the late Fr Hugh O’Sullivan, who worked as a chaplain with the Adelaide, Australian and International YCW.


What exactly is happening?

What is this doing to people? (the consequences)

Why is this happening? (the causes)


What do you think about all this?

What do you think should be happening?

What does your faith say?


What exactly is it that you want to change? (long-term goal)

What action are you going to take now? (short-term goal)

Who can you involve in your action?
