It's normal for an overheated/slipping trans to shift hard. It's trying to protect itself from further damage. Do not drive it like this or a new trans will be next.
Try changing the fluid & filter. Be sure to flush out the cooler.

Ford is having lots of problems with the 6 speed auto. If you have ESP warranty you should go to a dealer and get it looked at. The dealer I know well has been replacing a lot of them.
