Default CBT groups

I've recently started doing some CBT groups (one for depression, and one for generalized anxiety disorder), and I was wondering if others have experience doing CBT in a group format.

I'm curious if anyone has thoughts about groups being disorder-specific, versus a general CBT group. I've been assuming that CBT groups should be diagnostically homogenous, but I wonder if anyone has tried running a general CBT group.

With the depression group I recently started, we're using Mind Over Mood. Does anyone have suggestions of other texts/workbooks they've used with depession groups?

Also, for those doing groups, what do you find to be the optimal size? What about maximum size you find to be reasonable?

Neil
