Sleep disorders increase in prevalence and intensity with aging and often become chronic. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy of Insomnia (CBT-I) and the 3P model of insomnia allows to differentiate between predisposing, precipitating and perpetuating factors influencing insomnia and to attenuate their effects.
