Personal Biases Hindering Diagnosis

Can someone help with a description of at least two personal biases that might prevent a clinician from accurately assessing and diagnosing cases of abuse and explain why? Also, I need to explain how he/she might address the personal bias to reduce errors in diagnosis.

Generally, abuse is a term used to describe harmful treatment toward a person. This term may include physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation, and neglect (OHA, 2012). Abuse may occur across the life span. Additionally, cases of abuse may not be unique to one particular race, gender, age, or economic class. As a result, the recognition of abuse might pose as challenging as the treatment. Psychologists may make assumptions about symptoms and patterns of abuse that may lead to error in assessment and diagnosis.
