Eric Berne, the founding father of transactional analysis, coined the term afterburn to indicate the effect an atypical past event continues to exert on a person's daily schedule, activities and mental state even after it is over.

Afterburn is the flip side of reachback, which is the effect of the event on the person's life before it.
