Does everyone who experience abuse have a personality disorder?

Varies tremendously: Abuse and the circumstances surrounding it can lead people into behaviors, beliefs, memory patterns and attitudes that serve them poorly in dealing with others. Different people are affected differently, just as no two life histories are the same. It's human nature to resist change, especially things learned in the home or early life. A challenge for both patient and therapist.
