Anorexic debate refers to usually unsuccessful attempts by caregivers to rationally convince an anorexic child to eat. The Maudsley approach postulates that cognitive distortions arising from malnutrition, and resulting neurological dysfunction, disable a patient's ability to rationally process concepts related to weight, shape, appearance and food related issues.
