Deterministic thinking is an absolute thought to ignore any probability in incidents and their inferences.

The experimental group was exposed to emdr in five weekly 1.5 hour sessions. The dependent variable of this research was evaluated through questionnaire of deterministic thinking (younesi &mirafzal 2007) before and after the treatment. Then the data was analyzed through using an an COVA analysis. The results indicated that the EMDR was effective for decreasing deterministic thinking of couples.
