Unfortunately what's probably happening is that one or more of the internal shaft seals has worn a groove in the shaft. When you go around a corner, the side forces will permit the shaft to loose contact with the seal resulting in a temporary pressure drop that makes the trans inoperative for a moment.
The seals are usually nylon and won't respond to any additives so you really need the unit rebuilt.
Welcome to Fixya
Slipping is often caused by driving with too little transmission fluid. When the transmission fluid gets too low the pressure in the hydraulic system gets low too and the transmission slips. Best thing you can do is not have it slip and to do that keep the fluid at the right level and change it (and the filter) every 30,000 miles. If fluid level is ok then its gonna be the transmission itself is having the problem. Time to rebuild.
