I think any kind of creative activity can be therapeutic. I know playing guitar can change my mood for the better. I teach at a music school and one of my coworkers is a music therapist. It may not be the type of therapy you are thinking of. She mainly works with special needs kids. But I have seen remarkable results in her students. If your son enjoys art, I would think creating art would have a natural therapeutic and beneficial effect for him.
