My current resume lists "counseling" as a job decription, is this term only reserved for graduate degrees?
I am a Case Manager at a Mental Health facility running groups and conducting indivdual and group counseling sessions. Can I use the term counseling in my resume or personal statement for grad schools, if I only have a BA in psych?
