This chapter presents theoretical and methodological considerations for a psychology based on relational process theory, sketching the benefits of 'researching practice as process'. Introducing Deleuze's concept of 'event' the chapter illustrates this approach by discussing the interaction of psychological and legal practices as process. The argument focuses on the way the notion/concept of suggestibility undermines traditional assumptions about the relationship between memory, experience and self. By activating the paradox of the psychosocial, suggestibility introduces a type of process thinking into these practices. Drawing on empirical data gathered from experimental psychological practices and in interviews with criminal court judges for research about child witness practice, the chapter illustrates the pragmatic as well as theoretical contribution researching practice as process can make by opening up new perspectives towards conceptions of agency and change.
