The contributions in this two-volume set represent the work of over two hundred international researchers from universities, government laboratories and industry, with diverse backgrounds and interests in a wide range of coatings and thin film processes. The two hundred and six papers attest to the fact that Metallurgical Coatings is a rapidly growing field attracting experts from the large materials, scientific and technical community. The papers will be a useful and dynamic tool for those wishing to increase their knowledge on metallurgical coatings, as well as providing a guide to recent literature in this field.

Stefan G. Hofmann, Ph.D. is an international expert on psychotherapy for emotional disorders. He is professor of Psychology at Boston University, where he is the Director of the Psychotherapy and Emotion Research Laboratory. Stefan was born and raised in Germany. He studied psychology at the University of Marburg, Germany, where he received his B.A., M.S., and Ph.D. He came to the US in 1991 and has been calling Boston his home since 1996. Prior to that, he was at SUNY Albany and before that at Stanford University. He has been President of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT; 2012-2013) and is presently president of the International Association for Cognitive Psychotherapy. He is presently editor-in-chief of Cognitive Therapy and Research and Associate Editor of Clinical Psychological Science and was formerly associate editor of many other journals, including the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology. He is the recipient of ABCT’s Outstanding Service Award, the Aaron T. Beck Award for Excellence in Contributions to CBT by Assumption College and the Aaron T. Beck Award for Significant and Enduring Contributions to the Field of Cognitive Therapy by Academy of Cognitive Therapy. He was an advisor to the DSM-5 Development Process and was a member of the DSM-5 Anxiety Disorder Sub-Work Group, Stefan has published widely as an author of more than 300 peer-reviewed journal articles and 15 books, including An Introduction of Modern CBT (Wiley-Blackwell) and Emotion in Therapy: From Science to Practice (by Guilford Press). He is also the co-author (together with David Barlow and Mark Durand) of one of the best-selling Abnormal Psychology text books in the world, Abnormal Psychology: An Integrative Approach (8th Edition). His research focuses on the mechanism of treatment change, translating discoveries from neuroscience into clinical applications, emotion regulation, and cultural expressions of psychopathology. Stefan has been awarded generous research grants from the NIMH and NARSAD. He is a fellow of the Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies and the Association for Psychological Science. He gave up his American Psychological Association fellowship status when he resigned in protest over the fact that APA was actively involved in torturing political prisoners. He lectures internationally, is a licensed psychologist, and is married with two children. Weblink: http://www.bostonanxiety.org/
