    this is just what i learn from my review. most groups have 6- 12 patients, with 8 often considered as the optimal number of patients. the more patients, there is too little time for each member to participate. the fewer there's a tendency to inhibit free of expressions because patients are afraid to disagree with their co-patients. let us see what other members can share with you.
