    • DISADVANTAGES:
      • Need to be carefully managed, especially when it is a sensitive topic.
      • Interviewees may be influenced by eachother; there may be a prominent voice meaning others wont be heard as much.
      • The researcher cannot confirm confidentiality within a group interview like in a individual interview.
