This article presents some biographical aspects of Argentine social psychologist Alfredo Moffatt, important to the historical context of its theoretical and conceptual foundation as well as its proposal for crisis therapy. In a second step deepens the concepts erected by the author that serve as the foundation for the concept of crisis, human existence as temporal and spatial reality resonates in Husserl's phenomenology and autore the existential-phenomenological tradition, to be identified. The third session presents the author's crisis therapy model and the four suggested steps: contención, regression, explicación and cambio. These steps generate different therapeutic approaches: empathic, hermeneutics and proactive. An example is its use in the service provided by the author in the tragedy of Cromañon nightclub held in 2004 in Buenos Aires that killed 194 young. The text concludes with a discussion of the relevance of Moffatt's work to current models of care for mental crises, as well as its originality in terms cultural partners.
