Professor Weaver teaches Psychopathology (212), Psychology of Motivation (330), and Psychology and Religion (the senior capstone seminar, 399).  He is currently serving as the psychology department chair. He grew up in New Jersey,  received a BA in psychology from Wheaton College  (Illinois), MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary, and MA and PhD in experimental and social/personality psychology from Princeton University. In addition to his academic work, he is also an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church U.S.A.  Professor Weaver has research interests in the areas of Alzheimer's dementia, addiction recovery,  psychological and theological understandings of human persons, and the nature of explanation in psychological science. He has recently spent time in Northern Ireland studying psychological and theological issues in efforts to promote reconciliation and peace between Protestant and Catholic Christians. He is a "railroad romantic" and whenever his schedule allows would rather conserve energy and take the train to get to his destination.
