Southern belle ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Southern Belle, a documentary film by MakeWright Film partners Kathy Conkwright and Mary Makley, is a unique insider's look at the 1861 Athenaeum Girls' School in Columbia, Tennessee, where the antebellum South attempts to rise again. The camp is held in the historic headmaster's home of what was originally a four-year college for young women from 1850-1920. Never before have cameras been allowed to closely shadow the students and teachers during this intensive week of historical reenactment. Every summer, young women from around the world eagerly sign up to become that iconic and romantic image of southern identity: the southern belle, replete with hoop skirt, hat and gloves, singing the region's anthem, Dixie. For them, the Civil War had more to do with states' rights and unfair taxation than slavery. Instructor and camp founder Mark Orman explains, "I just don't want the things that our families did to be discounted ... You have to judge things that were going on in the past by the past." -- NPT media update <http://www.wnpt.org/mediaupdate/>

Many children involved in the juvenile justice system are there due to mental health issues. Mental health treatments can be highly effective and often involve the whole family.
