A district is a group of headmates that split during a single time period around the same group of traumatic events. These headmates revolve around the trauma that caused them to split. This is in relation to a system grouping parts of their life into different sections. Each district might have its own layer, however they can exist within the same section of headspace. Headmates within a certain district have better communication within their own district than the rest of the system. Districts cannot be created, they simply come into existence when groups of headmates split in a certain pattern.

For example, a system with two districts might have one district that is dedicated to early childhood neglect full of mostly caretakers, and another district dedicated to an abusive relationship full of mostly protectors.

History[edit | edit source]

The term was coined by The Timekeepers in 2021 to describe Faer experience being a polyfragmented system[1].

This term was coined with traumagenic systems in mind, but can be used by any system no matter their origin.
