Many psychologists recognize that problems and solutions in their field need redefinition, but change has been slow or nonexistent. Indeed, little is known about how to transform the practice of a profession. This article's purpose is to stimulate discussion about what we want our fields to become and how to go about realizing our visions. A professional fantasy, using school psychology as an example, is presented to demonstrate that utopian descriptions can put ideas into currency and perhaps help to reorient a field. Means to reorient fields need identification, and the author calls for a study of social change within the practice of a profession.
