Default Basic protocol

Hi Sandra. I need clarification about a point of basic protocol. I have gotten distinctly different impressions about this from books, my EMDRIA approved training, and my EMDRIA approved consultant that supervised me between EMDR1 and EMDR2!!
At the beginning of the session, after getting the image that represents the worst part of incident, SUDS, emotions, somatic impressions, NC, PC, and VOC, how long should the client intentionally keep the image&NC in mind? Should I just bring it up, do BLS, and say "now go with that"? Or should they be intentionally trying to hold the memory while simultaneously focusing on BLS? What I currently do is the former, but Parnell, in her new book, seems to be implying that, at least for the first set, the client should be simultaneously focusing on the image and on BLS...
