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?

Individuals with undergrad degrees can provide counseling. Those with graduate degrees provide therapy. I think you are safe using the term counseling. Your job title "Case Manager" allows the admissions committees to know that is an undergrad position.

Absolutely. If you are doing it, say you are doing it. If they want details they will ask in the interviews.

There are many counselors who only have a two year degree or none at all. Definitely use the word, and any variation of the word you can find in a thesaurus of it so it isn't too... More
