The results of this study also show that the hope therapy given to the patients has increased the abilities: forgiveness, modesty and humility, prudence, and self-regulation, with potencies at 40, 73,17, and 40 percent respectively.

How can the above be improved?

Forgiveness.....40
modesty... 73
humility...... 17
prudence..... 40

What about self-regulation?

From a personal level though, "modesty" and "humility" as areas that need increasing in depressed persons? That seems incredibly counter-intuitive to me?

These are certainly not areas I've ever come across referred to either as symptoms of depression or as wellness aims.

Obviously this is your area and I'm not outright disputing it. But do you think you could possibly explain how these two attributes are linked to depression? (Especially 'immodesty' - a word I don't think I've ever heard used contemporaneously since my early childhood in a convent!)

THOUGHT: Woops! Have I missed a chunk of text somewhere? Have you moved on from Depression to Sex-addiction or Narcissism?
